  1. I wrote a little rap for this song – it's kind of long but the kids LOVE it. Set the rhythm: pat, pat, clap – here goes:

    The Respect Yourself Rap

    Camilla Cream loved lima beans,
    but no one else did, if ya know what I mean.
    She wanted to be popular in class and so
    Camilla Cream chose to just say no.

    She looked at herself on that first day of school,
    'cause she really really wanted to be cool.
    She screamed at what she saw – Oh, YIKES!
    Her body was covered with colorful stripes.

    The kids at school got quite a laugh,
    then the Stripes became Stars on their behalf.
    The Experts just couldn't figure it out
    and a media frenzy came about.

    Camilla's parents didn't know what to do,
    and even the Doctors didn't have a clue.
    But a kind old lady came Camilla's way
    and hoped that she could save the day.

    She gave Camilla some lima beans.
    She first said no, if ya know what I mean.
    But when she finally ate 'em, it felt oh so good.
    She didn't care if they teased her like she feared they would.

    So the point of the story is this, you see:
    Respect your individuality.
    Just take a stand, to yourself be true –
    so others will trust and respect you, too.

  2. I recently started a blog about the ways I have used different books in my classroom. I posted about A Bad Case of Stripes. Then, I found your site via Pinterest. I hope you don't mind, but I posted a link back to your site about the way you have used this book in your classroom.
