Sammy wants you to know he’s no blabbermouth. He’s no tattletale. No squealer or rat. He has one golden rule: he never snitches!

When Sammy catches his best bud Carlos sticking a wad of gooey gum under a desk, Sammy doesn’t spill the beans. When the meanest kid at the elementary school sneaks off with an extra cupcake, Sammy doesn’t tattle. When the school counselor shows up 10 minutes late, Sammy stays silent. After all, he’s no snitch and proud of it.

But Sammy becomes concerned when his friend is bullied by another student. Will he be able to stay tight-lipped when his best friend is called a crybaby and targeted for a beatdown after school? Sammy isn’t the only one who’s worried – he sees anxiety building in his friend too. Will the many “see something, say something” posters plastered in the hallways make Sammy rethink his attitude and report the threat?

My Name’s Sammy, and I’m No Snitch is a powerful tale for children in grades K through 5 about why it’s important to report dangerous behaviors, how to recognize the difference between snitching and reporting, and why asking adults for help is sometimes the safest thing to do. Tips for parents and educators are included at the end of the story to help teach children how to communicate and put their decision-making skills to use when it comes to distinguishing “snitching” and reporting potentially dangerous situations. 31 pgs.

Extend the learning with the accompanying downloadable activities: Grades K-3 & Grades 4-6!
