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!
