A Bad Case of Stripes

A Bad Case of Stripes is about a girl who loves lima beans but doesn't want to eat them because her friends dislike lima beans and she wants to fit in. At the end of the story she starts eating them even though her friends think she is weird. She enjoys being different and enjoying different things. We learned each of us is unique and that makes us special.
