Imagination Soup - Melissa Taylor

Foreward Reviews - Pallas Gates McCorquodale

"Knowing when to speak up and when to stay quiet can take quite a bit of thought and practice, especially if you are super observant and eager. In Miles McHale, Tattletale, Christianne Jones humorously relates one boy’s struggle to leave behind his tattling ways. A veritable zooful of friends brightens the story, with art by Elina Ellis, as Miles points his feathered finger at one classmate after another until wise Mrs. Snitcher creatively intervenes." - Foreward Reviews

Imagination Soup - Melissa Taylor

"This is a great book for that certain age — around 5 and 6 when tattling can be problematic. Miles McHale is a constant tattletale. So his teacher, Mrs. Snitcher, starts the “Tattle Battle” with this pledge: “If a friend is sick, hurt, or in harm’s way, then telling someone is okay.” And when Miles’s sister slips and falls, he learns the important difference between telling and tattling." - Imagination Soup
