"No one likes"Josh the Tattler" because he tattles way too much. He tattles on his classmates, his brother, and even his dog! Until one night he wakes up to find his tongue is very long, yellow, and covered in bright purple spots. Will a bad case of Tattle Tongue teach him a lesson?
A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue gives teachers and counselors a humorous, cleverly creative way to address the time-consuming tattling-related issues that often sap classroom energy and thwart teaching opportunities. Parents who "battle the tattle" at home, on the playground, in the grocery store, or anywhere else, can use this book to both entertain and enlighten their children about "The Tattle Rules." Every adult that desires to help children understand the differences between unnecessary tattling and the necessity of warning others about important matters needs this book!
"It is clear Julia Cook is very in-touch with the realities of how much to both engage and educate children. She has created a fanciful story replete with rhyme, repetition, and a healthy dose of imagery and imagination that tastefully and responsibly tackles the problem of childhood tattling. A wonderful book that children, parents, and educators will love!"
