I love reading this book. I think it is such a good picture book to read to second graders who are starting to tell gossip around the classroom. Blabber mouse has an issue with his friends because he can't keep his mouth shut and has a hard time keeping secrets. Blabber mouse then tells his teacher that they forgot to give out the homework and his friends decide that they need to say something to Blabber mouse. They decide to throw Blabber mouse a party and give him a diary to write down his sec ...more

What a great way to deal with blabbers mouths way of telling secrets. They didn't shun him or get mad at him, they gave him a way to deal with his compulsion to be a blabber mouth. I liked that a lot. This book showed that you dont always have to be mad at someones short comings, just give them other outlets. I like this book.
This book is about a mouse who has a big mouse. The mouse tells everyone everybody elses secrets and likes to gossip. By the middle of the story no one wants to their friend and the mouse starts to feel alone. By the end of the story the mouse realizes that telling everyone everbody elses secrets isn't a nice thing to do and that if someone tells you a secret you should keep it to yourself.

This book has a very beneficial lesson that everyone needs to learn. Secrets are not meant to be shared. Reading this book to a class would be very benefical because it includes a lesson that all students need to learn. Students need to learn how to keep a secret.

Considering I just heard my 3-year-old call his 1-year-old brother a "Blabber Mouth" after hearing this story, I'm a little wary of recommending it.

This is another definite read in my classroom. The mouse in the story has a big mouth. He tells secrets and loves to gossip and his friends no longer want to be his friends.
This book was kind of strange. It gives lessons on how to keep from telling everybody something when you arent suppose to and what/where you can write things down instead.

Nice message to kids about keeping secrets. Secret #1 was hilarious; you need to really focus on the illustrations as well as the text.
