about

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.

Includes tips and information for adults.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ideas and strategies for taming the tongue Oh boy, to say Tessie has run-on mouth is an understatement. She not only talks non-stop but she is loud and overbearing on top of it, wanting everyone to hear all about every little aspect of her life. Her brother has had enough, her parents are worn out trying to discipline her and her classmates are constantly running away from her incessant babble. Suddenly Tessie realizes she is not much liked and isolated so she must find a way to tame that tongue that is on fire, and wagging, all the time. How can she do it? She seeks the help from her patient teacher, Mrs. Hardy, who refers her to the school counsellor, Mr. Abel. Together they hatch a successful plan that teaches Tessie to quiet herself, talk way less and listen way more to what other people around her have to say. There is an old saying that says, "God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason." Isn't that the truth? The back of the book features a segment entitled, "Tips for Helping Talkative Children". It is packed full of wise advice and ideas to aid you if your child is a overachiever when it comes to talking. I highly recommend this book.
