Description

No Talking by Andrew Clements tells the story of a group of fifth graders who battle in a contest to see who (boys or girls) can speak the fewest amount of words in 2 days! This novel is funny, relatable, and perfect for upper elementary students. No Talking teaches about the importance of words as the characters learn to stop and think before they speak.
