Descrição

Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but she never eats them. Why? Because the other kids in her school don't like them. Camilla Cream is very worried about what other people think about her, but at the very moment she most wants to fit in, she becomes completely covered in colorful stripes! Worse yet, she seems to change colors to match whatever is happening around her. When the class says the Pledge of Allegiance, she turns red, white, and blue! Instead of blending in, she's standing out.

Specialists are called but the situation goes from bad to worse. Isn't there anyone who can help Camilla remember what it means to be herself?

Sure to invite discussion, this is an engaging book that imaginatively explores the risks of trying to be like everyone else.

Please note: this audiobook is in Portuguese.

Sobre o autor

Raised on a farm in Montana and graduating from Cornell University, David joined the Peace Corps as an Agricultural Advisor in Iran - prior to the revolution. During that time, he did the overland trip through Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to Nepal and the Hippie Haven of the 70’s – Kathmandu. He fell in love with the place and swore to return. Finishing the Peace Corps in April 1976, he returned graduate school in International Administration. This was followed by a position with Lutheran World Relief digging wells in the Sahel of Niger, West Africa. This was followed by a position with Foster Parents Plan (now ChildReach) as Director in Jacmel, Haiti. After two years in Jacmel, he was offered his dream assignment - Country Director in Nepal, and he flew off to Kathmandu in May 1981. There followed the most fabulous two and a half years of his life. While there, he met Terri whom he eventually followed down to New Zealand and married in June, 1984. He currently resides in New Zealand and has two daughters at university. He worked for Watson Wyatt as a remuneration consultant for 25 years, and he and Terri are now preparing to travel the world again.

    I loved this book when I was little, the colors and the pictures were amazing
  • (5/5)
    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.

    Gorgeous illustrations and such a beautiful example of why it is so important to be yourself!
  • (5/5)
    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.

    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.
