She's proud to be the school's biggest tattler, always slithering up to the teacher to rat out anyone who makes a mistake or acts a little mischievous. One minute she's outing Opal the Octopus for doodling, and the next minute she's calling out Casey the Cow for blowing bubbles.

Is Diamond just a snake in the grass who can't be trusted? The class busybody who likes getting her classmates into trouble? Or does she tattle because she thinks it's the only right thing to do?

Diamond Rattle Loves to Tattle is a cutely illustrated tale about figuring out when the right thing to do means telling an adult and when the best thing to do is figuring it out on your own. A great lesson on developing problem-solving skills for young readers.

Tips for parents and educators are included at the end of the story to help children learn other options besides tattling and getting to know the difference between trying to HELP someone in trouble and trying to GET someone in trouble.
