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.
