Tessie Tames Her Tongue

A Book About Learning When to Talk and When to Listen

$14.99

Tessie is bright and eager to share all the stories about her life. She talks to her parents, her little brother, the bus driver, her teacher, and her classmates. But when she gets chatty, she’s loud . . . and talks with her mouth full of food . . . and doesn’t give anyone else a chance to say what’s on their minds. After her little brother complains and her classmates ignore her, Tessie knows it’s time to tame her talkative tongue. With help from her school counselor, Tessie learns to talk less and listen more.

Dynamic book for talkative extroverts!

We all know and love a kid (or even adult) with a gushing river of things to say but how to we get a word in edgewise or engage the vital lesson of also being a listener? As a parent, educator and bookseller, I have yearned for this exact book. Told with pedagogical humor and wisdom, Tessie discovers she has wonderful things to share alongside tools to tame her tongue!
