This artful picture book is a great example of our 6 by 6 skill, "Talk, Talk, Talk." Children hear more new words when you read books – about three times more than in normal conversation. When you come to a word that your child isn’t familiar with, such as chameleon, don’t substitute with an easier word. Not only will this book help your child learn new words, but it offers a fun way to talk about different colors, their various shades, and how trees turn various colors with each season.

Lovely story about finding your place in the world that also teaches colours.

Great book that teaches the young ones that it's ok to strive for individuality.
