Synopsis: "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!

Note to readers:
•  Hear and see this book read aloud on YouTube by one of our volunteers, including a craft at the end!

Discussion topics:
•  (We read this book before we started creating discussion topics in our reading guides.)

Craft ideas:
•  (We read this book before we started providing craft ideas, but check out the video above for a craft idea and explanation at the end!)

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don't have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
