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.

This book is my absolute favorite children's book. It is the story of a young girl, Molly Lou Melon, who moves to a new school and does not quite look or act like her peers. It teaches students about diversity and how it is okay to not be like everyone else. It encourages students to embrace who they are and to be confident in who they are. This book could be a great read aloud for the first day of school. It could also introduce a lesson on character analysis.

Stand Tall, Molly Lou Mellon by Patty Lovell is a very fun and colorful book that children will love! It teaches children that it always works out for the best when they just embrace who they are and do not listen to what other people say about them. This book also shows children that they can be brave and stand up to bullies. I think that the colors and the fun pictures that are found all throughout the book will make it very easy to keep children interested in the story. If I were to teach a lesson with this book I would relate the lesson back to being yourself and I would have students draw pictures of themselves and write things next to the picture that are unique about them. I would then allow students to share if they wanted to!

Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon is on a 3.5 AR level, but I would not hesitate to use this text in a lower elementary classroom also. The text is centered around a young girl, Molly Lou Melon, who embraces her imperfections because her grandmother always said encouraged her. Because of her confidence in herself, Molly Lou Melon is able to befriend the boy who is bullying her by the end of the story. At the very end of the story, Molly Lou Melon writes a letter to her grandmother to say,"I wanted to tell you that everything you told me was exactly right!" In a younger grade, I would use this text to help children embrace their imperfections and uniqueness. However, in an upper grade, I would use this text as an opportunity to have students write thank you letters to someone who has inspired him or her.

This sweet book is a great book for teaching individuality and acceptance because Molly Lou Mellon is different and has a bully her first day to a new school. She is clumsy and very small, but perfect in her own way. This is a great book for kids in kindergarten to second grade.
