Review of Tween Talk by Erainna Winnett

This is a book geared toward tweens – those in-betweeners who sometimes seem to have trouble fitting in. The author addresses several very timely topics, to include:

  • Bullying
  • Cyber-Bullying
  • Peer Pressure
  • Cliques
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Friendships
  • Success

It’s clear that the author knows what she’s talking about, and that she has a great deal of experience working with this age group. She explains things in a nice, conversational tone that children should find easily relatable.

I was a little surprised to notice several typos (mostly missing words) scattered here and there. I also wondered how many youngsters would actually take the advice to tell an adult when they’re being bullied. I hope that they do, since bullying seems to be such a problem nowadays. Overall, I found the advice in this book valuable and useful for tweens, as well as parents, caregivers and teachers.
