A Story About Gossip
This book uses serious and silly rumors to illustrate the concept of gossip and how it spreads and transforms. While gossiping is a natural human behavior, it also describes what hurtful gossip feels like, how can be like bullying, and what to do to stop it. Illustrations take readers through a day in a little girl’s life and the gossip around her as the kids around her ask “did you hear?” A “Note to Parents and Caregivers” is included that describes how gossip can have negative effects, whether intended or not, and what can be done to prevent it.
