A Bad Case of Stripes
by David Shannon

Camilla loves lima beans, but she never eats them because the other kids in her school don't like them. And Camilla 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!  In a starred review, Kirkus said "Shannon's story is a good poke in the eye of conformity... and his empathetic, vivid artwork keeps perfect pace with the tale." 

This is a teacher favorite!  In fact, the National Education Association named it a "Top 100 Teacher's Books for Children."  We agree. :)  It's great for teaching character education, specifically self-esteem and individuality.
