A Bad Case of Stripes written and illustrated by David Shannon
The school librarian I am doing my field experience with read this to a class. These eye catching illustrations are sure to hold a kid’s attention. This is a story that will tickle young children and older ones can learn from. Camilla Cream is getting ready to go to school and suddenly comes down with a bad case of the stripes and it just continues to get worse. An adult can see it coming because the illness makes Camilla stick out like a sore thumb but even when she becomes a part of the room she still refuses to admit her “shameful” love of lima beans. The cure is to simply be herself.
