Little Chameleon loves to play hide-and-seek. He knows a few special hiding tricks. Will you help look for Little Chameleon?

A cheerful seek-and-find book filled with colors, numbers, and animal friends. For toddlers ages 30 months and up, with a focus on the child’s language development.

I'mAnita Bijsterbosch. I was born in 1961 in The Netherlands. My entire life, I have loved reading. As a child, I could spend hours thumbing through books, looking at the pictures and hoping I could one day make such beautiful illustrations myself. I studied the images down to the smallest detail and made up my own little stories to go along with them.

After high school, I took drawing and painting lessons in small galleries in my neighborhood. And I learned a lot from drawing and painting books. But I also mastered many techniques simply by experimenting with them on my own.

When my children were still young, I read them a bedtime story every night. I rediscovered that some picture books are real pieces of art. That’s when I got the ambition to make my very own picture books.

I was remarked by the jury of theKey Colours International Illustrators Award 2012. The book Whose Hat is That? was published by Clavis Publishing and every book I have made since has been even more successful.


Praise for Anita Bijsterbosch's other work

“A "yawner" in the best sense, this parade of sleepyheads isn't just a series of variations on the same motionâ??it offers a mix of repetition and low-key interactive surprises....Irresistibly somniferous” -Kirkus Reviews

“ The art is colorful and engaging and the simple text has a defined focus. A quick story and exercise, perfect for nap or bed-time sharing.” -School Library Journal

“Children can make ... animals yawn on the subsequent pages, and the effect is just as goofily charming each time. Finally, it’s the child’s turn to yawn and go to sleep, piled up with all of the sleepy animals. Resistance (to yawning) is futile.” -Publishers Weekly


Winner of an Oppenheim Gold Award and a Kirkus Best Books Prize, Bijsterbosch has established herself as an author-illustrator who understands toddlers and preschoolers, their interests, their developmental stages, and how to convey concepts and emotions to them in books that educate and entertain.
