Read full description of the books:
This is a multi-cultural story that draws upon the African-American lifestyle in the rural south, written by an author who has been the recipient of an NAACP Image Award, Newbery and Coretta Scott King Awards.
It is a witty and touching story about a girl named Libby who learns an important lesson about honesty. When her mom catches Libby in a lie that "slid out of her mouth, like it was greased with warm butter", Libby vows never to lie again. She learns, however, that there's a right and wrong way to tell the truth. Her mom explained, "Sometimes the truth is told at the wrong time or in the wrong way, or for the wrong reasons. And that can be hurtful. But the honest-to-goodness truth is never wrong." This story conveys this important lesson in a very gentle and sympathetic manner.
The folk art style of illustrations and homespun language give an authentic flavor to this story. Libby's emotions feel genuine as her friends and family help her realize that the truth is easier to swallow if it is sweetened with love.
Recommended for children ages 6 to 9, it could be a useful book choice for lessons on character development, writing style, and related social studies units.
