A Color of His Own by Leo LionniElephants are gray. Pigs are pink. Only the chameleon has no color of his own. He is purple like the heather, yellow like a lemon, even black and orange striped like a tiger! Then one day a chameleon has an idea to remain one color forever by staying on the greenest leaf he can find. But in the autumn, the leaf changes from green to yellow to red . . . and so does the chameleon. When another chameleon suggests they travel together, he learns that companionship is more important than having a color of his own. No matter where he goes with his new friend, they will always be alike.

A Color of His Own
There once was a sad and lonely chameleon that had no color of his own. All the other animals had colors; the pigs were pink, the elephants were gray, the parrots were green, and so on. He thought if he stayed in the same place forever he would achieve a color. So, he decides to sit on a green leaf and became green, however, when the fall came and the leaves changed colors, so did the chameleon. He experimented by going from place to place, but the color never remained the same.
