This is a colourful and imaginative tale of a chameleon who doesn’t fit in with the rest. He realises that it’s not just good to be different… it’s a lot more fun!

Delight in the rhyming verses, vibrant colours and hilarious drawings as you are taken on a wonderful journey with a special little chameleon (wearing fabulous pants).

MY THOUGHTS: 4 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS

The Colourblind Chameleon by Laura Kantor

I thought this was quite an adorable story. My 5 year old enjoyed it as well, and it was short enough to keep his attention. 

This is a tale about a little Chameleon who is different from all the rest. He tries hard to fit in but just can’t. So he takes off to find a happy place where he can be himself.

I thought this book taught kids a nice lesson, that no matter how different you are, there’s always a place where you can fit in.

I’d definitely recommend this book to parents of young kids and beginning readers!
