A Color of His Ownby Leo Lionni
Synopses & Reviews
Elephants are gray. Pigs are pink. Only the chameleon has no color of his own. He is purple like the heather, yellow like a lemon, even black and orange striped like a tiger! Then one day a chameleon has an idea to remain one color forever by staying on the greenest leaf he can find. But in the autumn, the leaf changes from green to yellow to red . . . and so does the chameleon. When another chameleon suggests they travel together, he learns that companionship is more important than having a color of his own. No matter where he goes with his new friend, they will always be alike.
Colorful illustrations and spare prose make this story of friendship perfect for a board book edition to introduce simple color concepts to toddlers.
Now available in a board book edition, with color illustrations, is this charming story of a chameleon searching for his own color, who ends up finding a true friend. Lionni is a four-time Caldecott Honor winner.
Now reissued in its original picture-book format, this classic introduces toddlers to the charming story of a chameleon searching for his own color who ends up finding a true friend. Full color.
