Maya’s friend Bailey loves to talk about everything and
everyone. At first, Maya thinks Bailey is funny. But when Bailey’s
talk leads to harmful rumors and hurt feelings, Maya begins to
think twice about their friendship.
This book maps to the Steps to Respect lesson on
controlling rumors and brings attention to the damaging
consequences of “trouble talk”—talking to others about someone
else’s troubles in order to establish connection and gain
attention. It includes additional resources for kids, parents, and
teachers, as well as advice from the author about how to combat
trouble talk. This book is recommended for reading ages 4–8.
