Emily Gravett is my latest favourite picture book writer! Her illustrations are enchanting and her story lines captivating for a read-aloud book.
In this story, a blue chameleon feels lonely and seeks to find a companion. It is a great book to teach colours!
You can follow up with the activity below (please see Colour Blocks in Language and Math)
For this activity with the colour blocks, you can ask a child to first practice matching the colour blocks to the circles on her own and at the same you say out the name of the colour as she matches. Secondly, proceed to ask the child to pick the colour block when you say out a colour name, and lastly ask the child to name the colour when you point to a colour block. Always observe if the child is ready to move to the next level, and encourage your child lots!
