A Good Case of Be Who You Are
A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

I was introduced to this book several years ago and it has been a favorite since the day I read it. "A bad Case of Stripes", by David Shannon, has a wonderful message to send to children about being themselves no matter what others think. Camilla Cream, the main character, is getting ready for school one morning when she looks in the mirror to see herself covered in rainbow stripes! She had no clue why she looked this way and it took lots of doctors, poking, probing, and pills to NOT figure it out! She thought she was doomed to look like this for the rest of her life until a sweet, little, old lady comes to her rescue. Camilla soon figures out that the reason for her stripes is because she is not being true to herself. You will have to read this funny and gut wrenching story to find out what it is that she's trying to hide. This story can be used in any elementary classroom as an activity to spread the word about always being yourself no matter what some people may think. Nothing is more miserable than playing a part in life and not enjoying yourself for who you are!

A Bad Case of Stripes
A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon In my view this book, although well written and meaningful, is not really suitable for 4 - 6 year old kids which are included in the suggested age range for this book.
This story somehow feels like a horror story. Creepy and frightening ! and at the same time it emphasizes on some aspects of the social pressure on kids, which might not be an entirely clear concept for 4 year old kids. That said, it might give older kids something to contemplate and satisfy their need for creepy stories, without giving them nightmares.

A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

In this book, the main character, Camilia Creme loves to eat lima beans. But she does not like to eat them in fornt of her friends at school, because they make fun of her. This book shows readers how if someone cares about what people think, it can show effect that person. I would use this book in my classroom if I were to teach about confidence or bullying.
