The Girl Who Grew a Tattle Tail Book Description :
Annabelle Fansworth was a sweet young girl from the South, polite and proper. However, she had a great flaw. In school, she was called the “Tattle–Tail” because she would tell on her classmates all the things she saw and heard. Bothered by her daughter’s attitude, Annabelle’s mother told her not to tattle on her peers just to get them into trouble. “You’re friends might learn to dislike you, you will be all alone and you might grow a tail where one doesn’t belong,” her mother cautioned. Despite the warning, Annabelle continued telling on her friends–that Sissy wrote something on the wall and that Johnny has flattened the ball–doing what she thought was right. One morning, to Annabelle’s shock, she grew a twisted and furry tail where no tail should be. Can she still get rid of this tail? How? Written with lovely rhyme and vibrant illustrations on each page, The Girl Who Grew a Tattle Tail is an engaging read that can be the perfect tool for parent–child bonding as it imparts a lesson on obedience and friendship.
