The Christmas Chameleon - A Colorful Tail (The Original)
This 30 page softcover book - "The Christmas Chameleon - A Colorful Tail" is a whimsical story of a little chameleon who comes to visit an elderly lady while she decorates her Christmas tree. They share experiences and become friends and the granny's whimsical expressions change as she interacts with the boldly colorful chameleon.
The repetitive refrain of "Once beside a Christmas tree" followed by the antics of the chameleon (he startled me, stared at me, winked at me, etc.) are wonderful for any young child to anticipate.
This book is charming. It is a wonderful way to teach children and adults that love and understanding can be found in unexpected places. The secret is to look and to open your heart. The illustrations are as good as the story.
The author, Anne Boykin designed, illustrated and has autographed this darling book for children of all ages.
I should add Anne is a childhood friend of mine and her books are so well written and designed - this book will become a childhood treasure for any child.
