Can you imagine having a pet chameleon? I truly can not! I would be afraid that it would sneak out of its cage and blend in with everything around my house. You know... that is exactly what happens in, “My Colorful Chameleon”. A little girl owns a hide and seek loving chameleon that is always lost within the house. She blends in with the tiles, fruit bowl items, plants, bedding, and bath fixtures. As anyone can imagine, the little girl’s mother is not a fan of a pet that is invisible and impossible to find. After the chameleon is found they take her to the vet to figure out why she is always changing colors. Will the vet help convince Mother that a chameleon is a good pet? You will have to hunt this book down to find out!
At the end of the book is a “Next Steps” page that will help parents, teachers, and caregivers further extend the story. There are eight mini sections that help provide talking points that get children’s minds thinking outside of the book.
Between the rhythmic text and colorful illustrations children will fall in love with this story and an ever changing chameleon. (Beware this book may encourage young children to request a chameleon for a pet!)
On top of all of this, there is a fabulous "Next Steps" page at the end, with quite a few talking points for readers going forward. Ex: "The chameleon in this story changes color a lot. Can the children name every color that the chameleon becomes? Which was their favorite color and why?"; And, "The chameleon in this story is a pet and lives in a house. Where do you think chameleons live in the wild? What colors could they change into in this environment?" and so on.
My kids (4 and 2) are really enjoying this one and we're very thankful to have received a copy courtesy of the author, Leonie Roberts.
What makes this book extra fun is the upbeat-rhyming narrative sprinkled under a rainbow of light-hearted humor and bold and bright illustrations. It’s so fun for your littles to try to locate the chameleon on each page. I’m telling you, this will be a game changer for those littles who dread reading! Go ahead and buy it. I promise you won’t regret it!
