Trouble Talk Hardcover – Illustrated, 1 May 2008
"Ludwig acknowledges the lure of connection and the pleasure of sharing information about each others but also exposes the harm that words can do." -- Kirkus Reviews, April 14, 2008
"While the message in Trouble Talk is clear to young children, the story is realistic and does not become didactic. A foreword by Charisse L. Nixon, director of research for the Ophelia Project, explains that girls are more vulnerable to this destructive way of connecting to their peers. The author concludes with a brief note on relational aggression, ways to engage children in healthier friendships and empower bystanders of trouble talk, questions for discussion, a list of related organizations and Web sites, and a bibliography. As she notes that researchers are discovering that trouble talk is on the rise and equally or even more harmful than physical bullying, this picture book will prove to be a valuable resource for children, educators, and parents alike." -- ForeWord, May, 2008
