Very colorful illustrations accompany a story on acceptance of oneself. Great for the intermediate reader, but an excellent story for all ages.

The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle tells the story of a chameleon who isn't happy with himself and wants to be like the animals he sees in the zoo. This story teaches children about the uniqueness of different animals. But it also teaches children that it is important to be themselves.

Eric Carle continues to entertain us over here in this household. My daughter (2 years old) loved to see the different parts of the animals on the chameleon and pointed out all the colors, the pages are interactive as usual and we loved this book.

My daughter loves this book! She's 3 years old and has the Eric Carle video that has this book as a story plus 4 others. She loves the silly Chameleon getting all mixed up, plus the message that it's ok to be who you are.

On a visit to the zoo, the chameleon sees all kinds of animals. He wishes he could be like many of them and - poof! - he becomes like them. In the end, he ends up so mixed up that he isn't able to function, and decides it would be better to just be himself. This is a terrific story for teaching children to appreciate themselves the way they're created.

Absolutely the best children's books. Very heavy paper and lots of repetition for young children.

My son liked this book originally for all the different animals, but when he started to learn about being your own person, he loved it even more... he likes knowing that he is the one of him around and thinks the chameleon makes the right choices in the end.
