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.
