Did You Hear? A Story About Gossipby Frank J. Sileo, PhD
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.Learn more about this title.
