Tessie Tames Her Tongue Book Review

Tessie Tames Her Tongue is a great social story for the extra-social butterflies we all know and love. Tessie's strategies are easy to replicate, and the book shows that it does take multiple weeks for strategies to really begin working. Tessie Tames Her Tongue:
A Book About Learning When to Talk and When to Listen

Publication Date: September 1, 2017


Tessie talks and talks... and talk and talks and talks. At breakfast, on the bus, at recess, during class: Tessie just has so much to say, and she loves talking! However, no one else seems to love her talking all the time. With the help of her teacher and support from her parents, Tessie sees the school counselor who helps give her strategies for listening more and talking when appropriate. Tessie uses the strategies for a few weeks, and each week it gets easier to be a better listener.

Tessie Tames Her Tongue is a great social story for the extra-social butterflies we all know and love. We all have that student (or our own child) who needs to share every single thought in their mind whether it's the right time for it or not. Tessie's strategies are easy to replicate, and I appreciate that the book shows that it does take multiple weeks for strategies to really begin working.

Tessie Tames Her Tongue is a good resource to have on hand for teachers and school counselors.
