Audience: 3rd Grade - 6th Grade
Laketon Elementary has a nickname for their 5th grade kids, it 'The Unshushables'. But that all changes when Dave Packer reads about how the Mahatma Gandhi practiced complete silence for 1 day a week to bring order to his mind. Though Dave is known to talk nonstop, he is determined to give the idea a try. During school the next day, Dave runs into Lynsey, another chatterbox, and they end up challenging the boys against the girls in a no-talking contest for 48 hours. The only time they can talk is when an adult asks them a direct question at which time they can only answer in 3 word sentences. Can 'The Unshushables' really keep their months shut for the 48 hour contest? Will the parents and teachers figure out what is behind the changes in the kids' behavior? Read this entertaining book and find out.
