Type of Reading: family reading, playtime reading
Recommended Age: read together: 1 to 4; read yourself: 5 to 8
Young Reader Reaction: The mother's actions are a great lesson to teach to young children about how they shouldn’t lie. If children tell the truth in the first place then they don’t have to be punished for doing wrong. The author has a good way of showing the consequences of lying.
Adult Reader Reaction: The author has created a very believable scenario for parents and kids alike. She also offers parents an affirmative way to teach lessons without raising voices or taking away privileges.
Pros: An excellent story that will hit home quickly…and keep kids on their toes if their parents apply the author's plan for turning the tables on lying.
Cons: It's an e-book, and may not be readily available to all audiences.
Borrow or Buy: Buy. It's a wonderful story for the price.
Educational Themes: This is a simple way to hammer home the importance of telling the truth.
