A Bad Case of Stripes is perfect for 1st-5th grade. A girl named Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but she will never eat them. She is very worried about what the other kids will say because she is the only one who likes lima beans. When she tries to fit in, she becomes covered with stripes! She changes colors to match what is going on around her. People try to teach her to just be herself, but will she ever learn to be comfortable with who she is? Students could complete a character trait graphic organizer, or for younger grades, they could complete a coloring sheet and make their own case of stripes!
