Summary: This book tells about the very different colors of chameleons. The story follows a brave chameleon that ventures from the safety of his home in search of another one. During his journey he meets many animals, some of them friendly, and others.... not so much. The chameleon finds a home, but it turns out its another chameleon's home. The chameleon is hostile at first putting on her aggressive color, but once they find out each other are friendly they turn bright happy colors.

personal reaction: the book was very colorful and I loved that. The book was so cute and it is definitely something that I would read again.

Extension ideas:

Art: Print out a picture of a chameleon for each student and have them color it with bright colors.

Mood Rings: Give each student a mood ring, and explain that the way the mood ring works is similar to the way that a chameleon works.

Writing: Have students write about what it would be like if they suddenly woke up as a chameleon one day and had to come to school. ( )

This book is about a chameleon's journey to his new home in a tree. He travels through the woods to get to his new home and along the way he uses other animals to disguise himself. The lesson I would teach would be so kids can learn about how some animals adapt to their surroundings to survive in the wild, this will give them incite to how chameleon's can change colors to adapt. Fun concepts an book for a third grade classroom.

Experience close-up the many moods (and colors) of chameleons. One brave chameleon ventures from the safety of his tree in search of a new home. On his journey, he meets other rain forest animals, not all of them friendly! Alas, the new tree he chooses is already home to another chameleon. She dons her aggressive coloring until she's sure that the visitor is friend, not foe. Then they welcome each other with brilliant, happy colors.
