A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni

A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni is a warm-hearted picture book that promotes a sense of belonging, identity, growth mindset and acceptance.
 
“All animals have a colour of their own – except for chameleons. They change color wherever they go.” A chameleon searches for his identity by deciding whether he should turn just one colour like other animals.
 
As he travels with another chameleon he realises that having a colour of his own is not as important as friendship. His new philosophy is cemented when he meets a chameleon just like himself. “They remained side by side” changing colours together.
