Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6Chock-full of interesting facts, this friendly book features a lively text and a stunning selection of sharply focused, full-color photographs. The first chapter, "It's Not Easy Being Green," presents information about this unique creature's ability to change color. A graph of the chameleon's layered skin as well as a chart on reading its appearance are provided. Following chapters discuss mating habits, body temperature, etc. Attention is also given to the decline in numbers due to deforestation and just plain misinformation about these important reptiles. "Chameleon Facts" at the end provides information such as size, numbers of species, habitat, and life span. Perfect for general interest and reports.Helen Rosenberg, St. Scholastica High School, Chicago, IL
