Bullying is a sad reality of a child’s life. Many children will experience exclusion or put downs at some point in their schooling. Some children experience direct bullying, some witness the bullying and feel helpless and some children are the bully. The good news is there are so many awesome books available on this uber important topic.
My daughter starts school next year and her journey will have many ups “YAY” and downs “heartbreak” so my goal is to build her library with a range of empowering stories to give her the tools to STAND TALL and BE HERSELF as well as having lots of conversations together. Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon is part of her growing collection and we highly recommend it for ages 4-8 years.
Molly Lou Melon is short and clumsy and has buckteeth and a voice that sounds like a bullfrog being squeezed by a boa constrictor. But armed with the encouraging words of her grandmother, Molly Lou confidently confronts the class bully at her new school. A not-to-be missed story for the less-than-perfect part of everyone!
