Tell The Truth, Dragon!
By Bianca Schulze
Illustrated by Samara Hardy
Acknowledging and owning up to a mistake is a very difficult task for children—and it’s not always easy for adults, either! In this most recent installment of the popular Dragon series from Clever, Tell the Truth, Dragon introduces a situation in which Dragon does something that she’s not supposed to do, and then blames someone else for the mistake. Gentle text prompts readers to encourage Dragon to tell the truth and apologize for her mistake, even though it’s a tough thing to do. Dragon realizes her mistake and offers an apology—and then more than makes up for it! Designed to be a read-aloud, parents will take pleasure in the playful text as much as children will enjoy following the prompts to interact with Dragon. The whimsical and colorful illustrations enable the dragon to jump off the page and will delight readers with her personality on every page.
A truly wonderful story that all kids will relate to! When Dragon does something is not supposed to, it seemed easier to blame someone else. It’s not always easy to admit when you’ve done something wrong, but it’s the right thing to do. I love how the book gets kids to interact with the story itself. My son loved being able to help Dragon do the right thing. In the end Dragon not only makes things right but replaces the cake he took a huge bite from! Utterly adorable in every way. The illustrations are gorgeous and being the story to life. All kids could benefit from reading this fantastic story!
