This book is a great book for kids and provides a valuable lesson for children. ( )

This book is very creative and colorful. It is about a girl who is sick and is covered in stripes. She goes to school and is teased for it and gets even sicker. She gets more bizarre patterns on her skin and turns different colors. At the end the cure to her stripes are Lima beans which she then eats everyday.This book is a fun book for children and it teaches them to be themselves and like what might not be too common. I enjoy this fun book. ( )

This book is a fun book to read. It is about girl names Camilla. Camilla wants to fit in, she tries to do many things to make this happen. One morning when she is getting ready for school her skin starts to turn different colors and stripes. No one knows what is wrong with her. An old lady tells her that the cure to her case of stripes is to eat Lima Beans. ( )

This book is fun and silly for kids to read. It can teach kids about not caring what others think about you. Camilla always cared what others thought of her and then she came down with the worst case of the stripes. Her skin was changing to all sorts of patterns and colors and everyone was laughing at her. At the end of the book the case of stripes had gotten so bad Camilla decided people laughing at her wasn't as bad as having the worst case of stripes ever, so she decided to just be herself and enjoy the thing she loves, lima beans! After accepting that she shouldn't worry so much about what others think and just be happy with herself, her stripes went away. She then learned to be happy with herself, even if sometimes she is different.

I absolutely love this book. This is a good book for kids trying to fit in. Camilla is a young girl going to school and all she wants to do is fit in. She decided to not eat lima beans because her friends didn't like them even though she did. While getting ready for school, she tried on many outfits but she just couldn't figure out what to wear...eventually her skin turned to colorful stripes and her mom knew she was sick. They went to the doctor to see what was wrong but still couldn't figure it out. She turned all sorts of colors and patterns. Doctors looked at her but still couldn't figure it out. One day this old lady came by and said she could help, she gave her lima beans and told her to be herself and she was all better! Don't ever try to be someone you aren't, just be you!
