Book Overview

(Grades 2-6) A storm is brewing. Whenever Levi doesn't like the truth, he kinda, sorta makes up other stuff to say. One day his mother explains to him that telling lies will damage the trust of his friends and make him very sad.

Whenever you tell a lie, your inside sun goes away. Then a lying cloud forms, and glooms up your day. Each time you tell a lie, another cloud starts to form, and before you can stop it from happening, your insides start to storm.

This book is a great resource to help children understand not only the consequences of telling a lie, but also how one lie can often lead to telling several more. It will help parents and teachers understand that lying can be a normal and sometimes healthy response for a child and offers tools to help guide children toward truthfulness. Paperback, 32 pages.

   I absolutely LOVE this book
It was the first book I read that I absolutely loved. It was my first Christmas and I bought it for my 6 year old. Like most kid stuff, this book puts it into perspective very well for kids. In exchange for the use of the plane, I would give it to family members. It's great to have someone recommend it to our counselor, Melissa. She has a list of 10 recommendations, but she has not added it to her. This is not my opinion. It's probably a little too good, but it's just how well written this book is.
   after reading this story I would probably recommend this book for 2nd graders and up
I think it will work well for this lesson, but after reading this story I would probably recommend it to 2nd graders and up. The language is a bit advanced to capture the attention of the younger students, but the story is well written and has some merit. What I like the lesson that this story teachers, however, is that the story isn't very well written. One page will be written in a rhyming style, and the next won't come until June 5. The story is also unrealistic with the boy going from lying about everything to not lying at all overnight, Morgenthau said.
   Great book with a great lesson!
What a great book, how it illustrates what lying does to yourself. Both my 4 and 6 year olds love it.
   I absolutely love Julia Cook
I absolutely love Julia, but I would have to shell out the money for all of her books. She really knows how to reach the kids she writes for, but the cost is too high. I would love to see them offered in sets, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The library is what we have, until then, no wonder librarians are so overworked.
   I always recommend Julia's books
Julia Cook, who stars in a revival of the French cooking show "Master Class," claimed another trophy. Julia Roberts is a fan of both Elizabeth Gilbert and Jane Austen.
   This book was amazing! We have a couple younger children that are ...
He also said that although Gillian was not an avid reader, the book was "amazing." We have a 2-year old and a 4-year old who are starting to test what happens when they lie. Realizing this, I searched for a teaching tool that wasn't just talking with my kids about it. It's hard to imagine how a book could possibly do that. It's great to see the kids get to understand it, too, said Blair. It has been a book we have read a number of times.
   great book
In a recent interview, she said her 4 year old has started lying to me. I love this book, it has a great message without being judged. 0 3171 3171 This is a great book, it has a great message without being judged. It's a little old for him, but I still like it.
   Really great author with fabulous messages!
Very good book, very well written. Our 8 year old LOVES this book and reads it often just because. These books have definitely captured our attention as great tools for helping children understand life lessons without having to wait until they mess up to teach them, while you are upset with them and they are upset with themselves, the fact that they are in trouble, Mrs. Rule told us. It allows the messages to sink in a little better by removing the punishment phase and being proactive rather than reactive, he said. Many titles have caught my eye that I have fallen in love with too.
The story is told through the eyes of a boy who lies to try to avoid trouble. This is actually giving example to kids of how they can lie, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Very bad idea indeed, Michael.
   Great book!
This book was recommended to me by a teacher who wanted to teach her students about the problems with lying. I use it with my step son who is 7. It seems to hit home and understands the problems with lying.
