Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As a school counselor, I need more books like this!! Gossiping and relational aggression becomes even more prominent throughout the upper elementary school years. I felt like I hit the girl bully book lottery when I found this Trudy Ludwig gem. I love that Trudy uses phrases like 'trouble talk' and 'friendship-tug-of-war.' I have explored those phrases with students and there is serious meaning behind them. Spend time discussing the consequences of the behavior displayed during the story. The girl who causes all of the 'trouble talk' has to deal with those consequences, possibly not having any friends. I can tell the students relate to what's going on in the book and it empowers them to avoid Trouble Talk behavior. Get it on your shelf immediately!
Once again, Tracy Ludwig nails it on the head. I use this book with 4th graders combined with an activity that demonstrates how gossip can impact others. The students were glued to the book when I read it. She accurately describes how certain behaviors can cause problems with peers. She also covers the friend in the middle.
This is another excellent Trudy Ludwig book. I think she captures how the kids feel and provides a good sense of what the grown-ups SHOULD be doing in these situations. The ending was positive yet realistic and exactly the kind of thing kids need to know--that sometimes the best thing to do is to stop being friends with someone who treats you and others badly. Great example of a kid deciding, with effective adult support, the kinds of friends she wants and doesn't want--which is one fabulous way to stand up for yourself.
I love everything about this book! I love the very thoughtful and insightful Foreword by Dr. Charisse Nixon. I love Ms. Prevost's beautiful illustrations. And, most of all, I love Ms. Ludwig's story which illustrates the power of our words. Relational aggression is an issue that is now being discussed more openly in both homes and classrooms, and this is a great book to facilitate some terrific discussions. Highly Recommended!
I think this is a great book to explain what kind of behavior is not OK. Got it for my 6 yr old daughter BC she has a friend at school who causes drama and i think she was getting caught in it. She related it to her friends at school. It's great.
got it for my early elementary school girls - it isn't subtle but it also gave us lots of things to talk about and they continue to bring it out to read. It also gave me some key phrases I could use when they were randomly talking about interactions at school.
