A BAD CASE OF STRIPES
New York : Blue Sky Press,
IL K-3, RL 3.5
Cream loves lima beans, but she never eats them. This causes her to break
out in a terrible case of stripes, stripes on her skin, that is! Camilla
doesn't want to be different from the other kids at school, so she refuses
to eat lima beans. She learns the hard way that it is OK to be yourself,
even if it means being different from everyone else. This is a very funny
story with great illustrations, plus a serious matter to think about.
