The Trotters of Tweeville: Harraf Namrattle

Children/Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Create)

Harraf Namrattle lives in Tweeville and is a girl who always says what she thinks—no matter what! She doesn’t seem to understand that sometimes words can hurt others’ feelings and that some things are better left unsaid. Today, however, Harraf’s mother reminds her to think before she speaks. Harraf sets out to play baseball with her friend Bo, who has a new baseball mitt. What will she say when she sees it? Then she meets her friend Hennaj, who has a lemonade stand. What will she say when she tries the lemonade? When she sees another friend drawing on the sidewalk, will she take her mother’s advice and be nice? Can Harraf Namrattle learn to think before she speaks and to be kind to the people in Tweeville? In this second book of the Trotters of Tweeville series, one little girl works hard to practice kindness and care when speaking to others.

Harraf Namrattle is a typical young girl that likes to say exactly what she thinks without thinking about how it may affect the feelings of others. One day before she goes out to play, her mother tells her to think about what she has to say, and to try to be nice. Throughout the day, she comes across several situations where she thinks before she speaks and finds the nicer things to say. She learns that by doing this, she can be nice and feel better about herself as well. It's a good lesson of 'think before you speak'. Reviewed through Netgalley and Smith Publicity.
