A Bad Case of Stripes | David Shannon

“She tried her best to act normal, but when the class said the pledge of allegiance, her stripes turned red, white, and blue, and she broke out in stars!“ This quote is a great example as to how kids try and hide how they are feeling.

I think this book is perfect to read in a bullying lesson. The other kids make fun of Camillia for her skin. After reading the book you could talk about how hurt Camillia was from the teasing, and how teasing affects others.

“A Bad Case of Stripes“ by David Shannon, 2004. Picture book. I love this book! It's all about the pressures of fitting in, which is something very relevant to elementary age children, especially the older ones. The illustrations are a vital piece to the story. Camilla has a case of “stripes“ which makes her skin all different types of colors, like rainbow. In the illustrations she really stands out from all the other kids.

I would use this in my classroom because it shows the children that it doesn't matter what other people think about you and to be yourself.

This book does a great job of showing the development of the story through the pictures, the content is also age-appropriate. It shows the kids that it is okay to be different and that the most important thing is to be yourself.

This book was about a young girl who did not want to show who she really was because she was afraid of being bullied, and her learning to embrace herself. It is a picture book because the content is appropriate for the age level. Young students can relate to wanting to fit in. Also, the pictures are accurate and consistent with the plot of the text.
