Tessie is bright and eager to share all the stories about her life. She talks to her parents, her little brother, the bus driver, her teacher, and her classmates. But when she gets chatty, she’s loud . . . and talks with her mouth full of food . . . and doesn’t give anyone else a chance to say what’s on their minds. After her little brother complains and her classmates ignore her, Tessie knows it’s time to tame her talkative tongue. With help from her school counselor, Tessie learns to talk less and listen more.

Tessie is a little girl who cannot stop talking! Whether she's interrupting her family or her entire class she has to always dominate the conversation. One of the things I loved about this book was that Tessie's interrupting words were large on the page and all of the other characters spoke in a much smaller font. It showed how much someone who is loud and talkative takes over the airtime in a room. Tessie does tame her tongue through strategies given to her by her teachers and even recognizes the bad habit in another child. There are instructional pages at the end of the book to help parents and teachers work with talkative children. Fun to read and very useful in the classroom or at home.
