Chamelia review


Meet Chamelia! Chamelia is a chameleon. Most chameleons like to blend in, but Chamelia prefers to stand out. She just loves being the center of attention. But when standing out means being left out, can Chamelia learn to share the spotlight?  (goodreads summary)

This is a cute story about keeping your individuality but mostly how to make it fit for the right moment.  Chamelia is quite charming and full of expression in the way she dresses so she will not blend in with the other chameleons. She wears colorful patterned clothes and loaded with accessories to stand out.  Although it backfires on her when her sequined high heels are not right for playing soccer and she overdresses her part for the Goldilocks play.  Instead of feeling special she begins to feel left out.  She realizes that she can join in and still be different with just a touch of something special instead of overdoing it. The illustrations are colorful and the text is short and simple. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 4-7.~
