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.

Stars & Stripes - J. F. Harding,Abigail Roux

“It’s funny, you know?” Ty said. “How much things have changed.”
“What do you mean?”
“A couple years ago, at this point in the night, I’d be back in that bar with someone in the supply closet.”
Zane snorted and shook his head. “And now you just have to go home with me.”
“No,” Ty said, serious as he stopped and turned to look at Zane. “I don’t have to go home with you.”
Zane raised an eyebrow and cocked his head.
“I can’t wait to get home with you.

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.

A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon is a cute story about a young girl named Camilla

who loves lima beans. She refuses to eat them because her friends dislike them and suddenly she ends up with a bad case of stripes. The doctors run tests and studies on her but nothing seems to work. She seems to just be getting worse until she eats lima beans as the cure and is back to normal. I would have my students complete an activity sheet with visualizations from the book. The students will draw two pictures of what Camilla looked like at different times in the book and then write a paragraph describing her for each time. I would ask my students to be very descriptive with their details of Camilla. I would rate this book a four and a half stars out of five and it is listed as AD540L on the Lexile scale.

A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

Even though Camilla loves lima beans, she pretends that she hates them so that she fits in with her friends, who all hate them. One day, Camilla wakes up covered in stripes. The condition worsens and she starts to become the things that she’s doing or eating, or even what people are saying to her! Camilla’s last hope of going back to normal was to eat lima beans. She was hesitant at first, but knew it was all she could do. After she eats them, she turns back to normal. Camilla learns a lesson about being yourself and not conforming to others’ opinions.



In the classroom, this book could be used for teaching lessons and morals about being yourself and accepting others as they are. Students can learn about how they should not be afraid to be themselves and have their own opinions, even if they are different.
