...good topic since we have so many children like this...the story is easy to read and follow-they are exposed to this every day. -- Tania Joost-McNeill, Missauga, Ontario
This book does a good job of showing that some kids do not have control over their inability to sit still or pay attention, and that they are not choosing to misbehave. --Erin Gaffny, Hudson, Massach
They were good examples of ADD & ADHD behaviors that go on in many classrooms daily. Lessons on tolerance and friendship were taught. It opens up to great discussion on how everybody is different but special. -- Donna Dunbar, Venice, Florida

Howard B. Wigglebottom Blends in Like Chameleons teaches kids the importance of following social cues, in an effort to fit into groups. However, as the last picture suggests, maintaining one s unique personality is still encouraged. and kids aren t told to conform to the point they lose themselves in the group. A discussion guide is also provided for further classroom conversation. - Alice Berger, Berger's Book Review
This is a great story to teach our kids that it s okay to be different; they they are perfect just the way they are. --Attitude Magazine

My son is four years old, and he loved this book. One thing he was just tickled about was the book was signed! He tells everyone that Howard the bunny signed his book. He can identify with Joey in many ways when it comes to sharing, and having trouble following directions. This is a wonderful story about fitting in and letting others help you succeed in the process. It was very heart warming, and most children can identify easily with this book. It's especially great for younger children who are still in the process of finding their unique personality which can sometimes frustrate them and make them act out when they are left misunderstood. Not only is it full of compassionate lessons children can learn easily from, there is a fun feature that makes this book uniquely interactive. On all the pages where the chameleons are hiding you can help spot them. This keeps children absorbed in the book, and teaches great focusing skills. It's a really fun "hide and seek" game that keeps young children immersed in the pages easily. We also really loved that the illustrations are plentiful, colorful, and very well detailed. For young children who love illustrations and enjoy pictures that is a huge plus.Read more ›
The book tackles the following issues:
"There must be something wrong with me"
"Sympathy and Empathy"
"When we long to belong
"Peace and Calm"
This is a must read for any child! The illistrations are wonderful. My son enjoyed finding the "hiding" chameleons.
This is not the only book in this collection! There are 10 educator endorsed books (and 1 in the works) are suggested for ages 3-8 but they are a joy to read even as an adult.
