I remember reading this book when I was little in school together! It is such a well written book, with a lot of detail and the pictures are awesome as well. This book has such a great message and kids love to read it which is great because they need to learn to be themselves. The colors capture students attention really well. ( )

"A Bad Case of Stripes" is a wonderful, colorful book, perfect fit for any young reader. This book's underlying message of being true to yourself and not caring what others think of you takes this book to a new level. The incredible illustrations capture the reader on each and every page and I believe this book will remain a timeless classic. ( )

A bad case of stripes is about a young girl who becomes colored with all sorts of stripes at school. She ends up not being able to attend school anymore because she was distracting the students too much. Many doctors kept trying to figure out why she was having stripes all over her. An older lady ended up realizing that she just needed lima beans. This book is great about being independent and not trying to fit in. ( )

A Bad Case of Stripes is about girl who loved something but was afraid that people at school would make fun of her for who she is and what she loves. The story will teach students that no matter how strange you think something is always be yourself and do what you love. The purpose of the story is to love yourself and if you don't you only become what others want you to be. ( )

Be yourself no matter what others think! This is the moral behind this story. Most kids do not like lima beans, but Camilla does. With all her stresses of fitting in on the first day of school she develops a case of the stripes. The cure is outspokenly eating lima beans, which Camilla refrains from because she does not want to stand out. Even though these crazy stripes and other various colors and shapes are making her stand out in ways she does not want. A wonderful story to teach to young children about being yourself. ( )
