I would love to read this book to my students whenever they need a reminder on why its so important to always love themselves they way they are and how they should never place their value on the opinion of others.

Always Be Yourself
A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

Review:

This book is about a girl who is worried about how she looks to others. She loves lima beans but will not eat them because other kids at school do not eat them. Camilla, the characters name, is so worried about what others think of her she is worried about breaking out in a bad case of the stripes. Every time one of her classmates makes a suggestion about what she has, she breaks out into whatever they suggested. While an elderly lady helped her overcome what doctors could not, she begins to realize that she does not have to be like everyone else. 

 

Leveling System:

Lexile AD610L 

 

Classroom Activity: 

My class will a cause and effect activity for this book. We will determine what things did classmates say cause her to turn certain patterns. For example, a classmate suggested she looked like a checkerboard, that caused her skin to turn into a checkered pattern.

A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

Camilla loves lima beans, but won't eat them because kids will make fun of her. she comes down with a bad case of the stripes and all of the kids make fun of her. She keeps changing colors and no one can help her until and old woman comes and feeds her lima beans to cure her stripes. 

Lexile Measure: 610

 

I would use this with an activity from Teachers pay Teachers where the students will color Camilla's stripes in a color by number worksheet activity. I would also use it as a character lesson on being yourself.
