Molly Lou Melon is the shortest first grader, has buck teeth, sounds like a bullfrog, and is very clumsy. However, her grandma tells Molly Lou Melon to walk tall, smile bright, sing clear with joy, and believe in yourself. She attends a new school and a fellow student, Ronald Durkin, teases her. Molly Lou Melon proves that she can do anything as she’s a great football player, balances pennies on her buck teeth, and makes beautiful paper snowflakes. Ronald Durkin feels foolish that Molly Lou Melon accomplishes great tasks after teasing her. Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon is a great book to teach children to be proud and confident about who they are. The pictures are bright, colorful, and fun.
