The Early Buzz

The illustrations are fabulous too…… Funny and colourful.” ~ 5 Star Review, diamondlil, Amazon

MY THOUGHTS: 4 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
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!
