5.0 out of 5 stars A Fable of its Own, 25 Oct 2010
By 
Reflection Haiku "Lily Wang, Author" (California, USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: A Color of His Own (Board book)
Leo Lionni's tales are characteristically simple, unpredictable and beautiful and A COLOR OF HIS OWN is one of those touching fables where a sad chameleon who is tired of his color changing wishing to be more like other animals with same colors all the time. Opening the pages, young children learn about different animals with different colors - pigs are pink, elephants are grey but chameleons change color wherever they go. Then the humor comes into play as the artist explores how the chameleon looks like on lemons, on the striped tiger and just as the chameleon thinks he has got hold of the solution to his problem by remaining on a leaf so he would be green forever, the readers discover along with the chameleon the cycle of tree leaves turning from green, yellow to orange and eventually fall when winter comes...But eventually, he makes a great discovery that will solve his problem and the new-found wisdom (friend) will help him accept and appreciate his own colorful life to the fullest.

This review is from: A Color of His Own (Board book)
I am assured by my daughter that my one year old grand daughter loves this book. Haven't actually seen it myself. She apparently spends ages turning the pages very carefully one way, then all the way back again! Soon she will appreciate being read to and understanding the story.
