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

Molly Lou Melon is small, clumsy, has buck teeth, and the confidence to be herself no matter what! There are many times in the story where people try to discourage Molly Lou Melon from doing something, like playing football because she is small, but she never once lets anyone stop her from achieving her goals. This story has a great message of accepting others and the wonderful illustrations will always make your class laugh! I think this book would be great in a first grade or maybe even a second grade classroom and could be used to teach social skills and the importance of being yourself. A whole group discussion on what Molly Lou Melon looks like on the outside compared to how she feels on the inside would give students great insight on building confidence and self esteem.

Pete the Cat too Cool for School By: Kimberly and James Dean
Pete the Cat: Too Cool for School - Kimberly Dean,James Dean

"Pete the Cat too Cool for School" contains a great moral: "If you want to be cool, just be you!". This would be a great book for the beginning of the year. After reading, students could complete an activity writing and presenting to the class how they are cool, giving details about themselves.

Llama Llama Time to Share By: Anna Dedney
Llama Llama Time to Share - Anna Dewdney

This book would be great for a social skills lesson on sharing and making new friends. Great for beginning of school year.In the story Llama meets Gnu girl, he has to learn to share with Gnu girl and to find something to play together that meets both of their different interests. 

The text also rhymes throughout the story, this book could be used to reinforce different word families.  

I found a activity pack on teachers pay teachers to go along with this book:


Included in this pack:
- Story sequencing activity
- Rhyming practice cards (great for a Memory activity!)
- Rhyming words practice sheet
- An original short story related to sharing (nice for fluency practice!)
- Extension activities for the short story
- Writing activity
