Poppins Book Nook: Leapin’ Lizards

This post contains affiliate links.

PBN Leapin Lizards

It is time once again for Poppins Book Nook. This month’s theme is: The Wild West. Please join in the fun with the linky & giveaway at the end!

We decided to focus on the critters of the Wild West. Lizard’s Home is a cute story about a lizard who has to outwit a sneaky snake that has invaded his home.

We have lizards everywhere around our home, and we enjoy studying their patterns and colors. I printed out a lizard outline for Sweetpea to decorate. She colored it, cut it out all by herself, and glued on pieces of brightly-colored chenille stems. She even added accessories. Doesn’t every lizard need a bright pink scarf?


Feel free to download the lizard pattern if your child would like to decorate one too.

Don’t forget to print out your September Lapbook to document your adventure this month.
