Toddler Thursday: Blue Chameleon

Toddler Thursday                                                                                                                                Blue Chameleon by Emily Gravett                                                                                                    Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, March 2011

Poor Chameleon just doesn’t feel like he fits in anywhere.  He tries so hard to make friends, but he can’t seem to find acceptance no matter how hard he tries to change himself.  But then he finds someone just as crazy, colorful, and out there as Chameleon himself.  What a difference it makes when he stops trying to be someone else!

I loved this book.  The text was very simplistic, which works great for my little one when trying to get her in bed at a decent hour.  I found Emily Gravett’s illustrations captivating.  This Chameleon was so much fun to find and discuss on each page.  Overall the book was extremely engaging for myself and Maddie.  Even at 4 it opened the door for a discussion about how special and unique we all are.  It didn’t hurt to be reminded as an adult to be myself as well.  Timeless message in a beautiful package.

"The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.” -Elizabeth Hardwick
