Summary

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 might think of her. In fact, she's so worried that she's about to break out in...a bad case of stripes!

For My kids

I enjoy getting to spend time with my kids and listening to audio books together is one of them. For the younger age groups this is wonderful and one they enjoy listening to over and over again. I would say from about 5-7ish age group. That said I enjoyed it myself, the reader is great. If your looking for a good short read before bed time two thumbs up on this one.

Great Book. Great Performance

If you could sum up A Bad Case of Stripes in three words, what would they be?

Good life lesson

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Bad Case of Stripes?

My son loves when Camilla eats her lima beans, regardless of what others may think about her, and she is healed.

Which scene was your favorite?

My son loves the scene in which the children are saying the pledge and Camilla turns red, white, and blue stripes and stars..

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction. Just genuinely liked it.

Any additional comments?

I purchased the audio to go with the illustrated book. My younger son reads along with the audio as I do my nightly reading. It's a really gret way to make time for your children and yourself to read simultaneously.

Love the book! Only complaint

Love this story, the reader gave a great performance! Could have done without the music, or with it a little quieter. At times it made it hard to understand/discern the reader.
