The Mixed-Up Chameleon written and illustrated by Eric Carle

This picture book tells the story of a chameleon who is no longer satisfied with himself when he ventures into a zoo and sees all of the other wonderful animals. After trying out parts of each animal, he discovers that he is happiest just being himself. The Mixed-Up Chameleon is a wonderful book that teaches children both about chameleons and about learning to love themselves for who they are. That lesson, when done well, cannot be over taught.

My daughters received this book as a gift from a dear friend. Because of Eric Carle’s beautiful artistry, The Mixed-Up Chameleon is as fun to look at as it is to read. It’s also a nice change of pace that it isn’t geared toward girls alone. I would highly recommend this book as a gift for any young child. It’s sure to be treasured.
