DON’T SQUEAL UNLESS IT’S A BIG DEAL
A Tale of Tattletales
By Jeanie Franz Ransom. When Mrs. McNeal’s students turn into a room full of "squealers"—telling on fellow classmates for the most trivial things—it’s time to show them the difference between tattling and appropriate concern. Rather than issuing strict rules and discipline, Mrs. McNeal compares "kid-sized problems" to problems that need adult intervention. This delightful story encourages mutual problem solving and includes a note to teachers and parents. Grades K–4. Illustrated. 8" x 10". Magination Press. 32 pages. ©2006.
