This is a story of a little girl who is the smallest in her first grade class, she had buck teeth, and a voice that sounded like a bullfrog being squeezed by a boa constrictor, and to boot she was clumsy. Her grandmother has utmost confidence in her, and tells her at every turn to believe in herself. But Molly Lou's self-assurance is put to the test when she moves to a new town, away from her friends and beloved grandmother. During her first week of school, Ronald Durkin taunts Molly Lou Melon in the dull-witted but sharp-edged manner of career bullies, calling her "shrimpo" and "bucky-toothed beaver." Our heroine barely flinches as she systematically sets out to prove herself, and Ronald Durkin ends up feeling pretty foolish.
What can you say about this littler girl! This is a great book to help children with self esteem, everyone is different! This book is a great way to get this point across.
