Stand Tall is a wonderful sit down and read it together book. It is full of insight and sure to bring thought provoking discussions for all who read it! A great book for home and the classroom. --Libby Logan Perez, Parent, Educator and School Librarian
I have never seen my students so attentive and quiet! They loved the story and the pictures. All the children related so well to feeling different, unwelcome and unaccepted at some time in their lives. --Jaleh Oboudiyat, Religious Education Teacher
Stand Tall supports personal development units taught in schools and delivers the messages: It's O.K. to be different and everyone is special. --Susan Dwyer, Primary School Teacher
