Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon - Patty Lovell, David Catrow

The book Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell is one of my all time favorite books and there is no doubt that this will be a book that I will read with my future students. This story is about a little girl named Molly Lou Melon who was short, had teeth she could stack pennies on and a voice that sounded like a frog being squeezed by a boa constrictor (and so on). Her grandmother gave her so many words of encouragement and she felt so confident with herself. Sadly she was made fun of in school for those charactoristics but eventually made friends after the stunning snowflake she created. I just adore this book. Something that I would do with my students would be to have them draw and color self portraits. I would then have my students write three things they like about them selves to attach to the bottom f the portrait.I would rate this book a five out of five stars and it is listed as a ad560L on the Lexile scale.
