Here are testimonials for the book:
The author does a wonderful job of weaving the storyline with the ability for any child to follow and understand the sticky situations that can happen when you tell a lie. This is not put out to make light of "stretching the truth", "telling a little white lie", or "fibbing". With a well thought-out style, Ms. Sayles gives a pointed look at a youngster wanting to fit in, but let's his desire to be better than others get in the way of what he knows better. The results are handled well by the author.
Additionally I am impressed, not only with how she handles the boy's conscious and struggles with how he deals with lie upon lie, but also with the way the boy's mother and teacher are portrayed as compassionate adults who offer forgiveness. This is something sorely lacking in a lot of stories and other media nowadays.
I recommend this book to any parent wanting to give a wonderful story to help their child understand the trouble with lying. It just might lead to some great conversations between you!
I'd recommend this book for young children. They will enjoy the story while learning a good lesson of life.
Loved the pictures! Very handsome boy!
Jacob tells his class he has a pet monkey. Jacob is fibbing and this story details the consequence of his lying and clearly demonstrates why it is wrong to lie.
I enjoyed the use of photos of real children for the illustrations in the story. I think it will enable the reader to better identify with Jacob and his dilemma.
Jacob discovers that one lie tends to lead to another and suddenly you are in a bit of a pickle. Jacob discovers that honesty is the best policy and reconciles with all those to whom he lied. It is a delightful story of right and wrong that clearly demonstrates the need for honesty.
I recommend the book
