L is for...

Leon isn't your average chameleon.  Instead of blending into his surroundings, Leon turns the opposite color!  Leon, embarrassed by his lack of camouflage, feels like he doesn't quite fit in with the other chameleons.  One day when a group of young chameleons go exploring, Leon secretly follows them.  When they wander too far away from home and become lost, and it's Leon's crazy contrasting colors that save the day, allowing their parents to spot them from far away.  Not only does this book have a great message about appreciating individuality, it also includes a fun lesson in color theory, introducing readers to the color wheel, primary colors, and complementary colors on the final page.
