A chameleon has an identity crisis when it visits a zoo and wants to be like the other animals. Ultimately, it realizes it just wants to be itself. Carle's signature style is playful as the chameleon adds on different parts of other animals. Recommended to begin conversations with children about why it's great to be yourself.
