Sammy wants you to know he’s no blabbermouth. He’s no tattletale. No squealer or rat. And he most definitely is no snitch!
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. Afterall, he’s no snitch and proud of it.
But will he be able to stay tight-lipped when his best friend is bullied, called a crybaby and targeted for a beatdown after school? 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 children’s tale 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.
Debut author Jeff Tucker is a veteran school counselor whose work with young children and their parents inspired this realistic and riveting story about snitching.
