Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This indeed is a book with a difference. The outline of a chameleon is printed on a sturdy piece of plastic. As each page is turned, the chameleon slides onto that page. The point of the book is to teach about colors, by having the chameleon change colors as he meets a variety of other creatures. First, he is red like the red bird, then blue like a fish, yellow like a duck and so on. In addition to the color changes in the chameleon, there are other animals and things on the page in the specified color. For example, the yellow page shows yellow daisies and other flowers, a yellow bee and a bright yellow sun. On the last page, the chameleon decides to be the colors of all his friends. Note that the colors in the rainbow are not correct; this seems like a silly oversight. "A magic color book." Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
