This review is from: A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue (Paperback)
I purchased this book for my Kindergarten class. The book has some great ideas on how to combat tattling, but as a read aloud, I feel it is too long and not engaging enough to get the point across. This might work better for 2nd and up.

Not a helpful counter comment Misty. In case you hadn't noticed, children's books vary greatly in length - even ones with the same number of pages. Some of the picture books we own have one sentence per page. Others have multiple paragraphs on each page. If a teacher has to spend several minutes reading the lengthy text on a page while the kids fidget and get bored with seeing the same picture the entire time, then it's too long for a read-aloud book. This is one of the many things I love about Amazon's "look inside" feature; you can see if the format of the story will work for your situation. I wish they had it for this book.
