I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up Stand Tall Molly Lou Lemon. But I’m glad I did.
From the first page, it gripped my kids because it paints the picture of a little girl who stands out. Not because she’s popular but because she is the ‘shortest girl in first grade’. But that doesn’t stop her.
She has buck teeth, she’s short, has a voice like a bullfrog and she has wild curly hair. But she doesn’t care. She holds her head high and uses her limitations to stand tall no matter what.
But one day, she has to leave her friends and her supportive grandma… and start a new school.
She got called “Shrimpo” by the school bully and “Buck-tooth Beaver” but she doesn’t let that get her down.
An absolutely adorable book for children nervous about going to back to school, changing schools or facing bullies.
Molly Lou Lemon shows us that bullies will never win. That if you hold your head high, people will see the light within you. What a character and a lovely story. Perfect for ages 3-8 years.
