The Honest-to-
Goodness Truth


by Patricia McKissack
illustrated by Giselle Potter

Libby decides that she is only going to tell the truth, but her total honesty results in many hurt feelings, and she soon learns that sometimes truth helps and sometimes it hurts. "A welcome offering about honesty and consideration." (School Library Journal)

This book is great for teaching the 'delicacies' of being honest and how it relates to feelings.
