A Colour of His Own
Elephants are gray. Pigs are pink. Only the chameleon has no colour 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 colour 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 colour of his own. No matter where he goes with his new friend, they will always be alike.
Your littles one will love the colourful illustrations and spare prose of A Colour Of His Own which introduces simple colour concepts to them.
