Half-Truths and Brazen Lies: An Honest Look at Lying by Kira Vermond (28)

This is a wonderful book about lying and how it is so much better well, not to lie!  This is a picture book for kids of all ages that parents can use in order to bring home the message that lying is not a great thing to do. The earlier kids learn this important message, the better.

Kids lie. Some of these lies are harmless. But some lies are not harmless and can actually destroy a person’s reputation and life. So, it is important to teach kids not to lie and that lying comes with a very high price. Sometimes, we may lose friends. Other times, we may look bad in front of others.

Kira also discusses all the different kinds of lies from half-truths to brazen lies. The bottom line is that lying is not just a naughty thing to do.  It’s a part of the complex ways in which we interact with each other. After all, all lies are not equal. They are delivered in different ways for different reasons and with different consequences.

Also, determining whether or not a person will lie in a situation tells a lot about the person. Some people are just not trustworthy. Now, we don’t want to be considered untrustworthy by our friends and siblings, do we?

I loved this informative picture book for kids.
