A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

This book is about a girl who does everything her friends tell her to do. She does the things that the other children do, even if she does not like it. Well one day she wakes up to find that she is covered in stripes. The book goes on to tell the reader about the different physical abnormalities that occur. The main idea behind the story is that it is great for a person to just be themselves and not what peers think they should be. This is a great book to teach the children on individuality and self-esteem. The lexile level is AD540L so students should be around the 1st or 2nd grade for independent reading.
