A Color of His Own

4 minutes 38 seconds

Elephants 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 even this idea doesn't work out for the chameleon. Based on the children's book by Leo Lionni. This video is presented in American Sign Language by Rochester School for the Deaf, is silent, and contains no English subtitles. Part of the "Baby's Very First Black and White Book" series.

    Wonderful story told in ASL! Useful in teaching or reviewing signs for colors, animals, and classifiers.
