Rumor Has It... (Building Relationships)
Told through the eyes of the rumor marble, the story describes how a simple misunderstanding starts a chain reaction that can't be undone.
Teach your child not to spill the Rumor Marbles! This book can help them understand the importance of honesty and sticking to the facts and not gossip.
Whether we've been the subject of a rumor or the one spreading gossip about someone else, most of us have been involved with rumors somehow. But how many people really stop to think about the damaging effects?
Fortunately, award-winning author Julia Cook does, and cleverly brings this serious subject to light in an entertaining and funny, but cautionary, tale about the importance of NOT starting or spreading rumors, and why lies and deception or tall tales, can hurt others.
This story is part of the Building Relationships series of books to help children with social skills and manners.
K-6 students will laugh as they read this story and are reminded that rumors are pieces of information that have not been verified and that it's much easier to prevent a rolling rumor marble from starting to roll forward than trying to stop one!
Tips for parents and educators are also included.
