Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon

Jan 21, 2019

Molly Lou Melon has buck-teeth, a voice “like a bullfrog being squeezed by a boa constrictor” and she’s the shortest girl in first grade.

Molly Lou’s grandma tells her to walk proudly, smile big, sing out clear and strong and believe in herself. When she moves to a new town, leaving the support of her grandma and friends, Molly Lou learns just how important it is to be who you are.

The illustrations in this book exaggerate Molly Lou’s appearance, making it fun, silly, and instantly engaging. We learn from Molly Lou that our imperfections are absolutely perfect. Not once does Molly Lou let a school bully stop her from being herself.

This empowering book for kids 4 – 8 reminds them to stand tall and proud. As Molly’s grandmother says “believe in yourself and the world will believe in you too.”

Helps with: loving yourself, confidence, self-esteem, bullying, being proud, believing in yourself, starting a new school, not being perfect.
