"What we have here is a bad case of stripes. One of the worst I've ever seen!"
Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but she never eats them. Why? Because the other kids in her school don't like them. And Camilla Cream is very, very worried about what other people think of her. In fact, she's so worried that she's about to break out in...a bad case of stripes!
I will be the first one to admit that the cover of A Bad Case Of Stripes freaked me out. It also freaked Little One out. He told me he really didn’t want to read this but we both decided to conquer our fear and read the book.
I have noticed that Little One has been struggling with stress and sometimes I think it has to do with school and trying to fit in. I thought this story might help him.
Our library only had the audiobook available but after listening to a minute or two of the story. Little one asked me if there was a way we could see the picture. The kindle copy of the book wasn’t available to borrow at the moment so I got on Amazon and found it for $3.99. I decided to go ahead and purchase it.
The illustrations were absolutely gorgeous. Little one was amazed by the illustration. I felt like they complimented the story absolutely beautifully.
I personally loved the idea that the author brought to the story, which is to be you and not to fall into peer pressure. I know Little One may struggle with this in August when he begins kinder so I felt like this was a great book to open up the discussion of peer pressure.
