Description

Rumor has it... that the girls have a couch in their bathroom. And they sometimes take naps in there.

AND GUESS WHAT ELSE?

Rumor has it... they have a TV and play video games in there, too!

Whether we’ve been the subject of a rumor or the one spreading a rumor about someone else, most of us have been involved with rumors somehow. But how many people really stop to think about the damaging effects? 

Fortunately, award-winning author Julia Cook does, and cleverly brings this serious subject to light in an entertaining and funny, but cautionary, tale about the importance of NOT starting or spreading rumors. 

Told through the eyes of the rumor marble, the story describes how a simple misunderstanding starts a chain reaction that can’t be undone. Kindergarten through 6 students will laugh as they read this story and are reminded that it’s much easier to prevent a train – or a rolling rumor marble – from starting to roll forward than trying to stop one!

Rumor Has It is part of the Building Relationships series which supports social competence. Tips for parents and educators are located a the end of the story to help teach children how to cope and react effectively to rumors. 31 pgs.

The series also includes:

Listen to Julia's latest podcast on rumors.
