Louis always interrupts (erupts!)

All of his words are very important to him. When he has something to say, his tummy starts to rumble and then it starts to grumble, his words begin to wiggle and they do the giggle, and then his tongue pushes all of his words up against his teeth and out they come!

Louis’ mouth is a volcano!

This story takes an empathetic approach to the habit of interrupting and teaches children a witty technique to help them manage their own volcano mouths!


Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon, by Patty Lovell will give anyone the confidence to be proud of who they are. Molly Lou Melon, is short, bucktoothed, and sounds funny, but her grandmother always told her to believe in herself and be proud of herself, so that’s what she does.

When she moves to a new home and starts at a new school, Ronald Durkin, the local bully, makes fun of each of Molly Lou Melon’s unique features. Molly Lou Melon, however, stays positive and proves Ronald wrong at every turn.
