A Bad Case Of Tattle Tongue by Julia Cook

A book that gives parents, teachers and counselors a humourous, cleverly creative way to address the time-consuming tattling-related issues.  Parents who "battle the tattle" at home, in the groceery store, or anywhere else can use this book to both entertain and enlighten their children about "The Tattle Rules."

Rule 1 - Be a danger ranger - If a person or animal is in danger, you must warn someone!

Rule 2 - Be a problem solver - If the problem involve you, take charge and try hard to solve it yourself first. 

Rule 3 - Now or Later!  Is the problem a "Now" problem or a "Not Now" problem?  Can your problem be solved at a later time?

Rule 4 - M.Y.O.B - (Mind Your Own Beeswax!) If the problem is not dangerous and it does not involve you... Do Not Tattle!
