Speak Up, Molly Lou Melon
Molly Lou Melon's mother taught her to use her big voice for good - to speak up for what's right, for those who can't, and even when it's hard. So she does.
When school starts and a bully begins teasing everyone, including a new student, Molly Lou knows just what to do.
From standing up for a friend to admitting when you've made a mistake, Molly Lou shows us how speaking up is always the right choice.
