Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a great story to teach our kids that it s okay to be different; they are perfect just the way they are. --Attitude Magazine

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
We love all the Howard B. Wigglebottom books. Illustrations are awesome and in each there are valuable lessons.- --Special Needs Book Review

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

Joey is a kid who just can't seem to sit still, follow directions, share or listen. Others get mad at Joey, and since he doesn't feel like he fits in he does silly things that he knows he isn't suppose to do. This tends to get Joey in trouble again and again, and since he doesn't tell anyone how much trouble he has following directions he goes misunderstood. Howard comes to the rescue when Joey loses his two pet chameleons in school and gets in trouble. With help of his new great friend Howard, Joey learns nothing is really wrong with him and Howard helps him learn how to listen.

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.

This is a wonderful book about a little boy named Joey that struggles to pay attention, sit still and to finish tasks in school. My oldest son has ADHD and this book really hit home for us. The book is full of compassion, learning, and understanding. Howard, another character in the book, feels sorry for Joey and wants to help Joey (and he succeeds!!)

The book tackles the following issues:
"There must be something wrong with me"
"Sympathy and Empathy"
"When we long to belong
"Blending in"
"Peace and Calm"

This is a must read for any child! The illistrations are wonderful. My son enjoyed finding the "hiding" chameleons.

I not only recommend this book for home use but I think it would be a great addition to any classroom. With the last two pages, "Suggestions for Lessons and Reflections", parents and teachers can start a very productive dialogue. This book opens the door to great discussions about being a part of a team, self-esteem and being liked. It helps children understand not everyone learns the same and not to judge a "book" by its cover.

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.
