A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon
On the way to Lewiston this week for Idaho Education Association's Summer Institute, I had the pleasure of listening to the story A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon on my iPad via the Libby app. The Libby app is made available by Overdrive, which allows you to borrow ebooks and audiobooks for free! Available apps for Apple, Microsoft, and Google Play.
In this picture book, readers learn about the importance of being yourself and not putting too much thought into what other people think. You will be surprised to what happens to Camilla Cream on her first day of school; as well as how she is "cured" of her colorful situation.
The National Education Association (NEA) named the book one of its "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children."
I read this book as a part of my #BookaDay Reading Challenge, inspired by Donalyn Miller. My goal is to read at least one children's literature book everyday and share my thoughts here on my blog. Please feel free to subscribe or connect with me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time ...
