Too Tall Alice by Barbara Worton

Alice finds herself standing taller than any other girl in her class. She's so tall during the class pictures she's put in the back with the boys. Alice isn't happy with her height at first but finds that it isn't that back after all. Everyone is unique in their own way and Alice just had to find her place. This book is geared toward the 7-11 age group. That group that is trying to identify with something or someone. Trying to gain their self-esteem. Kids will learn it's ok to be different from Alice's story. The pictures are very whimsical. You just go to love it. I love to knees on Alice. She's the next basketball star; I just know she is.
