We had the chance, recently, to review some classic titles which have been translated to Chinese and 'A Color of His Own' was one of them.
Like the English title, Dumpling enjoyed the Chinese version too. The story centres around a chameleon which has no 'permanent' colour of his own. Instead, the chameleon is able to change its colour to match its surroundings. It went on a journey to look for ways to have its own colour and found companionship and friendship along the way.
The illustrations remain true to the English version where the colours of the various animals are bright and attractive. The story also introduces children to the simple concept of colours in short simple sentences.
Dumpling enjoys the fact that she is able to now read this title almost independently. The wordier pages are only about 3 - 4 sentences long (as below) so it is manageable for the older preschoolers.
Now, I am pleased to share that Read with Me Mommy is sponsoring one copy of this title (hardcover) for a giveaway!
