Another great book by Eric Carle. These books are great for children of any age because the illustration is so engaging. The colors bring them in and the plot is fantastic too. ( )

I really liked this book. I always read it as a child. I read this to both of my students at Wolfe Street and they loved it! They loved the bright colors. I think that was the reason that they chose the book initially. Additionally , They liked the way that the book was different. It was not a typical book with pictures on every page and words. I had pages that had tabs at the end according to the animal that the chameleon decided he wanted to be. The color of the picture correlated with the animal. I also like the message. The purpose/ message was to encourage children to enjoy and be proud of who they are. Each child has strengths, and if we try to change ourselves, we will not be able to perform or own our strengths.
