5.0 A Bad Case of Stripes
Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2, 3-5 Lexile Level: AD540L Camilla Cream loves lima beans but no one else does and she wants to fit in. When she becomes very ill, she must be herself to get well again. I would use this book to teach students to accept each other and bully awareness.
