Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell
I feel in love with this book along with my kindergarten class my first year as a K teacher. We read it during our back to school week. I enjoyed the simple yet loving message presented in the book. The illustrations were adorable and the children were captivated.
I think it's a lesson that all children need to hear once in while, love yourself. Self-esteem and bullying are a big problem with children today and I try to present lessons on this each day. I also try to model positive self-esteem to my classes and promote a no bully zone.
