    I loved this book when I was little, the colors and the pictures were amazing

    Gorgeous illustrations and such a beautiful example of why it is so important to be yourself!
  • (5/5)
    I love this book for the vivid illustrations and colors. It really captured my attention as a child and remains one of my favorite books. I love the message the book sends, to be yourself and learn that conforming to others likes or dislikes isn't always the best thing for you.

    Summary:A young girl, Camilla, wakes up one day and discovers that she is cover in colorful stripes. The book follows a couple days in her life where she discovers the stripes change colors and shapes and doctors are baffled. It all boils down to eating vegetables and being yourself. Personal Reaction:I remember this book from when I was younger. I liked the presentation of the material and most certainly remember hating Lima Beans with a passion because of their evil power. Class Extension:Maybe talk to the kids about eating the vegetables, or how teasing one another is not nice or fun.

    Camilla loved lima beans but did not eat them because no one else did. Before school looked in mirror and looked like a rainbow. Went to school and everybody laughed at her. Cured when she finally ate lima beans again.

    I had never read this book before but it was adorable. Lima beans is a good thing for children to relate to because many children do not like them. As a child I loved them! So as an adult I was able to relate to the book. In the classroom this could be a good resource for students. It could help them learn about people and their differences. Everyone could share stories about food they love and maybe others don't normally eat.

    Camilla Cream is an elementary schooler who loves lima beans. She also loves fitting in, so when her friends all say lima beans are gross, so does she. One morning she wakes up covered in stripes. As doctor after doctor fails to cure her, she finds her stripes transforming into anything she hears. Camilla thinks it's hopeless until an old woman arrives and teaches her a valuable lesson about being true to herself.This is a great book, The illustrations are really fun and the story itself is wonderful. It engages with a typical topic, but does so in a very creative way. It's appropriate as a read-aloud for any age and an independent read for elementary schoolers.

    This book teaches the moral that you should not be afraid to express what you like even if other people find it weird. Camilla, the main character loves lima beans, but other kids find it weird so she does not eat them. When she gets a bad case of the stripes, and the only solution is to eat lima beans, Camilla has to learn that its ok to like weird things.Teaching Extension:Used in BEAR program at University of MichiganHave students discuss things that they like to eat or do that may cause them to not fit in. Have them draw a picture depicting these things and then tie the picture around their neck. Have students wear their picture to show that they are proud to be unique and have different likes.

    A little girl named Camilla was so obsessed with what other people thought of her that she would not eat her favorite food, lima beans, because everyone else thought it was disgusting. One morning she became ill with stripes covering her body. She went to school and the kids teased her and said things to make her skin change colors. She took different pills, turning herself into one, and was looked at by different specialists and doctors but no one could help her. A little, old lady appeared at the door and offered her some lima beans. At first, Camilla refused but she got over her fear of what others think and ate them. She was cured!I like this book because Camilla had to face her fears. She had to go to school with weird, changing skin and face the students talking about her. At the end, she realized she needs to be herself and she will be the happiest. After she was cured, she didn't care if they talked about her eating lima beans as long as she was happy and didn't have weird skin.

    I think this is a great children's book. I've read it multiple times in classrooms where I've volunteered and with children I've babysat. Has a good story about being yourself and not worrying about what other people think of you. However, the story is told in a creative and entertaining way, so that it isn't all about the moral (and therefore is more interesting to the children reading it).

    Camilla cream loves lima beans, but she won't eat them because normal kids don't eat lima beans. She doesn't want to be herself, because it's not the same as everyone else. One morning, she wakes up covered in stripes! Her stripes change to polka dots, stars, and all sorts of crazy things! The doctors, the scientists, and the experts can't seem to figure our what's wrong with poor Camilla. Camilla learns an important lesson by the end of the story, but I won't ruin it for you. Students seems to love any illustrations done by David Shannon. This book is colorful and full of imagination, yet it is loved by students of many ages. This text is is not complex enough that younger elementary students in grades 2-3 couldn't read this, yet the message it carries is important to all students. As I mentor text, I would use this book with grades 4-6 to help teach conflict resolution. I would have students identify 3-4 conflicts throughout the story (there are several in this particular book.) Then they would identify how the conflict was resolved. Students would then take a piece of their own writing and identify the conflict(s) and write these conflicts into a column labeled "conflicts." Then the students would search for a conflict resolution within their story, and label into into a "conflict resolution" column. The purpose of these would be not only to teach students how to identify conflicts and conflict resolution, but to see if they are creating conflict resolutions in their writing when it is appropriate.

    Camilla wants so badly to fit in. She even pretends not to like her favorite food! On the first day of school, she tries on every outfit possible to find one that people would like. Little did she know that day, she would become everything everyone wanted her to be. (1998; K-2)This book is one of my favorites so far. It teaches children that it's okay to be yourself. When you hide who you are in order to fit in, you lose a bit of yourself and after a while, simply become what everyone wants you to be. The illustrations are absolutely amazing. They add so much character and life to the story. The text keeps the reader interested and curious. I will definitely have this book in my class library.

    This book is about a little girl named Camelia Cream. Camelia likes to eat lima beans, but she decides she will no longer eat lima beans because no one else at her school likes them. Camelia doens't want to be made fun of for eating lima beans. On the first day of school she wakes up with stripes from head to toe, and each day it continues to get worse. The kids at school make fun of her, and the principal says she can not attend because she is such a distraction. Towards the end of the book an old woman comes to visit and tells her that lima beans are the cure. This book is great for children because it is outrageously strange, and allows children to fantasize. But I also liked it because it taught children to just be themselves.

    This was a great book. The story is about a young girl who really likes lima beans and decides that it isn't "cool" to like them. When she gives them up in order to fit in, she gets a bad case of the stripes until she learns how to be herself.The review of the grade level says that it is a 3rd grade level book, but I would argue that it can still be a fun book for students in the 4th or even 5th grade also. I say this because this is a book that deals with social pressures, and in the 4th grade, it's possible that those social pressures are becoming more apparent. This would be a fun book to read as a class and have a discussion about staying true to who you are. After the discussion, you could have the students draw a portrait of themselves showing the various patterns and colors just like the book. This is a fun book to demonstrate the importance of acceptance as well as being able to use your imagination when doing writing or art activities that go along with the book. The reading level is definitely at more of the 2-3 grade range, but the moral behind the story is what allows the book to be a bit more advanced.

    Camilla's appearance changes in drastic ways when she gives in to peer pressure and won't act like herself.
  • (5/5)
    This book is a nice book that teaches the kids that is Ok to be different. and that even thought not everyone likes beans . It is ok because when you stay true to yourself then things will turn to be better. This girl had this case of bad stripes that will go arround her body . but she only gets better when she accepts herself how she is and that it is perfectly ok to be different.

    A very modern classic picture book. Camilla Cream likes her lima beans, but this makes her an outcast, because kids shouldn't like lima beans! She shortly develops a case of stripes and other colorful patterns across her body, much to the chagrin of her parents and a variety of healers. In the end, lima beans save the day and Camilla learns to just do what she likes and not worry about what others think.This is a wonderful read-aloud book that I use when my class needs some reminding about the different preferences and choices people have and make.

    I love love love this book. This is a story about a little girl who loves lime beans but didn't want to get them because no one else like them at her school, so all of a sudden she got sick and eventually was turning different colors and different items that she would see. Until her grandma came over and brought her some lime bean to heal her. This is a great book club book to have students read together and figure out the problem, unrealistic problem, and realistic problem.

    Camilla loves lima beans but doesn't want any of her classmates to know because she would seem "weird." But on the first day of school she wakes up with rainbow stripes all over her. Anytime someone suggests a remedy (or color scheme) she changes straight into what they want. By the end of the story she's quite the mess! But a lovely old woman brings her some lima beans, which she happily eats and it turns her back into regular Camilla. Then, Camilla knows it's ok to be yourself and eat lima beans in front of whoever she wants.A great read aloud for second grade!

    Summary:A little girl named Camilla loved lima beans but would not eat them because she was afraid the other kids at school would make fun of her. While trying to pick out clothes for school she ended up getting multicolor stripes all over her body that changed to polkadots and various other bizarre things as everyone tried to cure her. Finally, an old lady brought her a can of lima beans and when she ate them...she was CURED.Personal Reaction: I personally found this book was very close to my heart because I went through a stage where I felt like I shouldn't eat Red Beans and Rice because no one else did. I also went through an awkward stage where I just wanted to fit in.Classroom Extensions:1. This is a good book to read on the first day of school when children are at their most vulnerable.2. Also, I think this would be a good book to introduce certain changes and trying new things.

    This is a story about a girl named Camilla who loves lima beans, but does not eat them because she wants to fit in with the other students at school. On the first day of school she looks in the mirror and sees her striped face starring back at her. Throughout the book her colors change depending on what is going on around her. For example, when she takes medication her body turns into a large multi-colored pill. No doctor knows what to do. Camilla is healed by a kind old woman who entices her with lima beans. This book is full of vibrant colors and lively illustrations that attract students' attention starting with the cover. I greatly enjoyed this book and would read it for fun or to teach a lesson. The theme of the story is to be your own person and not let popular choices rule your likes and dislikes.

    The cover of the book brings you in, wanting to know what is making this girl all stripped. She loves lima beans, but wants to fill like she fits in at school so she says she hates lima beans like her peers. But this leads to an unruly case of strips which later transforms into whatever someone yells out. At one point, Camilla has turned into her bedroom with pictures for her eyes. She eventually realizes that admitting she likes something different isn't all that bad.Personal ReflectionI like how we can see that our peers can really have an influence over our thoughts and actions. Eventually we must realize that it is okay to be different and like things that our peers might dislike. A great book to illustrate the need to be ourselves and not fall to peer pressure. Classroom connectionsHave students draw pictures or write story about something they like to do/eat that might be different from their peers. Then present these drawings in class and display the many differences of the students in the classroom on a bulletin board.

    Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but won't eat them because she wants to fit in. One morning she wakes up to find that she has stripes all over her body. Doctors, experts, and a spiritual counselor try to cure her, but she keeps transforming more and more. Finally, an old woman gives her lima beans, and Camilla becomes a girl again. A cute story with a great message about not being ashamed of who you are.

    Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but she doesn't dare eat them because she's worried about what the kids at her school will think, since none of them like them. Then she wakes up one day with multicolour stripes all over her body, and when she finds none of her clothes look good with her new look, she stays at home while a bunch of people try to help her regain her usual appearance. Her condition only keeps worsening until she figures out how to just be herself. I got this as an audiobook and thought the story was very well told. It's descriptive enough to be enjoyable as is, but I'm sure the illustrations make it more than worthwhile to get the book version.

    When Camilla Cream worries too much about what others think of her and tries desperately to please everyone. First stripes, then stars and stripes, and finally anything anyone suggests (including tree limbs, feathers, and a tail) appear vividly all over her body. The solution: lima beans, loved by Camilla, but disdained for fear they'll promote unpopularity with her classmates.

Doctors, specialists, and experts don't know what's wrong with her. Finally wise old lady come to her with the cure for Camilla-to eat lima beans. She just needed to be herself.
