Product Details

Born To Stand Out is a colour-filled story about friendship, confidence and finding your ‘true colours’. Camo the chameleon is used to blending in, but he doesn’t really feel like he belongs. Whatever his friends do, Camo does too. But teasing is not always fun and bow ties can be uncomfortable. So, one day he tries doing something different.

Have your children ever felt like they didn't really belong? Camo chameleon knows what that feels like, but he also discovers that when he is true to himself he inspires others to do the same, and the world becomes a little more colourful.

This beautiful hardcover book is filled with bright illustrations, a fun story, a powerful message and some fun facts about real chameleons.

I have just bought 2 of the most gorgeous inspiring children’s books to go in my wee boys stocking this Christmas.  The message they share with wee ones is pretty powerful and written so beautifully. ~ Meli

The boys were given a copy of this book (A Hero Is) over the Christmas period, it is absolutely perfect. This book really puts the whole “Hero” thing into perspective and teaches wonderful attitudes (A hero behaves honourably with his friends)!!!

What should you look for when choosing short stories for kids?

Publishers sometimes indicate the age level or grade level for which they think that book is most suitable. Don’t hesitate to choose a book that may be suggested for someone older than your child as short stories for kids can be read to him or her now, and later on by the child.

It is also possible to find picture books that because of the subject or artwork will be just right for an older child. An interesting story in a beautiful, well-illustrated book offers the child an aesthetic experience to enjoy over and over again. Even adults can enjoy picture books and glean from the often deep messages within them.

Books with good morals

Good books for kids are not necessarily the most lavish or expensive books on the shelf. Take more than a few minutes to look at the books you intend to buy, read them or passages from them. A book is an unlimited investment in the human mind and spirit and its selection deserves thoughtful attention. Be sure to select books that share your family values and reinforce what you want to teach your children. If it is a good book for kids you’re likely to be reading the same book repeatedly, so make sure it’s a book you’ll both enjoy.

Help them make sense of their world

A young child has a limited range of experiences. Help your child relate to what happens to the characters in the book. The settings might be different but look for familiar emotions, familiar questions, and familiar situations. Good books for kids can also help children build empathy by stepping into someone else’s shoes for a while.

Picture books are often a great springboard into deeper discussions with your child. When you come across a powerful lesson within a simple children’s book, look for opportunities in the everyday experiences of your child to remind them of the lessons within the story.

Paperback or hardcover?

Most paperbacks for children are reasonably priced and lightweight, whilst hardcovers have the longevity and appearance of a quality book. Good books for kids, both paperback and hardcover make beautiful gifts for children that can be enjoyed again and again. So, next time you are thinking of a gift for your child, niece, nephew or friend, consider a meaningful children’s book.
