Parents, if you ever wanted to teach your kids not to lie, this is the book to read to them. If you can convince your children that their nose will grow to an embarrassing length if they lie, and it works, then do it since they'll thank you years later. Also, like Pinocchio, if your child has a dream, tell them that unless they are true to themselves, as in the story, it will never come true.
