Hooray for the Mixed-Up Chameleon
I wasn't too sure about this book when I first thumbed through it. We checked it out from the library but after several renewals had to purchase a copy. My three-year-old absolutely loves it. She loves commenting on all of the parts he adds when wishing to be different things and hooting about how "he is sooo mixed up!" The tabbed pages allow her to basically read the story to herself after hearing it several times.
I babysat several kids up to age 5 and took this book. They all loved it and we had to read it again. Then we made our own mixed-up chameleons. I traced the chameleon on to cardstock for them. They painted the chameleon all different colors and then glued on items like feathers, pipe-cleaners, little pom-poms, googly eyes etc to make him all mixed-up. The final touch was a ribbon for his tongue. The craft was a hit.
I think the book has touched on important concepts about self-image and liking yourself just as you are for my daughter. It also gave us an avenue to discuss how animals and people have different attributes that make them unique and special. We can admire someone elses attributes - but that we can't always possess the same ones.
