Stand Tall is a book about integrity. It teaches children to do what they want to do by how they feel and not by what others are telling them to do. That they should make good choices and make up your own mind to do what is right and not follow what the others are doing if you don’t think it is right. It teaches children to help others and let them depend on you and to act how you want others to act towards you.
At the end of the book are ways to reinforce the ideas presented in this book with your children.
