The Chameleon’s True Colors

We rated this book:


In the jungle lives a chameleon whose drab, colorless appearance begins to bother him, so he sets off in search of a remedy. When he notices the beautiful, bright sun, he wonders what its color is and decides he wants to be like it, lighting up the world with vibrance. He discovers an array of gorgeous hues––from pink and spotted red to green, blue, and striped orange––in the plant and animal life surrounding him. When his wish to become like them is granted, his body resembles a rainbow, leaving them with nothing at all. One by one, he returns their pigments and learns a valuable lesson about greed.

This is a gorgeously illustrated book full of illuminating colors and activity. The ink corresponds to the colors as they’re identified, adding a unique aesthetic twist. Children aged four to nine will embrace this tale. They’ll find the chameleon’s desire for more and inability to take in moderation relatable. They’ll celebrate in his quest to do the right thing by giving the colors back to their rightful owners. Their willingness to readily forgive him is refreshing. This light-hearted story will be a welcome gift for loved ones. They’ll treasure it for years to come.
