Children's LiteratureThis book allows children to see a chameleon up close through the use of its incredible photographs. It is a story with few words as the photos colorfully tell the story. The photos follow a male panther chameleon on a typical day's adventure. This type of chameleon is native to the tropical rain forests of Madagascar. The chameleon leaves the safety of a tree in search of food. He has to be very careful as he is now easy prey. On his cautious journey he encounters a gecko, two tiny chameleons, a tiny frog, a scorpion, and a big caterpillar—food! Through the use of photos it is easy to see how the chameleon changes colors depending on its mood. There is a "Did You Know?" section that describes the chameleon in greater detail. A note from the photographer explains how the photos were taken. This book would be a wonderful addition to any elementary school's library or science curriculum. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 5 to 8.
