Everyone knows that lizards eat flies, but Bli the Fly and Danny the Wizard Lizard are willing to put their differences aside to become the best of friends.
Danny the Wizard Lizard goes on a fly-free diet as he sets out to prove that he is not like all the other lizards. During their quest for friendship, Danny the Wizard Lizard and Bli the Fly encounter the Lousy Lizard Gang, a no-good group of bullies. Danny the Wizard Lizard gives the first glimpse into why he is a Wizard Lizard by exhibiting special powers to stop the bullying that goes on at the movie theater. Witnessing his heroic act, Bli the Fly’s mother, Mrs. Fly, realizes that she misjudged this lizard, and Bli the Fly gets her first lesson in giving second chances.
Don’t Judge a Lizard by His Scales, Book One in The Principle Gangseries by Dr. Dan and Bli Dugi, delivers lessons in anti-bullying, prejudice, and the value of friendships. The Principle Gang series introduces the foundational principles that guide families, relationships, and communities.
First Thoughts: Very cute and colorful book for children.
Bli the fly wants to be friends with Danny the Wizard Lizard but her mother is not sure if that is wise. Lizards can be dangerous for flies. So Danny decides the best thing to do is to meet Bli’s mom and prove that he is a nice guy.
Don’t Judge a Lizard by His Scales is a beautifully illustrated book about how you shouldn’t judge someone until you meet them. Bli’s mother was concerned for her child and wanted to meet her new friend. I’m not a parent but I know that it is important for parents to be involved in their child’s life and to make sure their friends are good people. Just because they might be a little rough around the edges doesn’t mean that they are necessarily bad and that is why a meeting is a good thing. Mrs. Bli realizes that she had judge Danny wrongly after she gets to meet him. You should always be concerned with who your child hangs out with as you need to make sure they are safe.
At the end of this book The Principle Gang has notes for both kids and parents because these books are made to build fundamental principles in your child and help guide your children.
I would highly recommend this for anyone who has young children that like to read or be read too.
