Book Synopsis



A Book that Helps Kids Learn the Difference Between Tattling and Telling

No one likes "Josh the Tattler" because he tattles way too much. He tattles on his classmates, his brother, and even his dog! But one night Josh wakes up to find that his tongue is very long, yellow, covered in bright purple spots, and Itchy, Itchy, Scratchy, Scratchy...

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 who desires to help children understand the differences between tattling and the need to warn others about important matters needs this book!



Review Quotes




A great book I use with my first graders at the beginning of the year (or whenever the class needs an extra reminder) to discuss the differences between tattling vs needing to tell (as in an emergency). My students have always enjoyed this book and will frequently reference back to it from time to time.

It is clear that 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!
