Lying is common among young children, and unfortunately in today's world lies are flung from all directions. This tends to set a bad example and can make telling the truth harder for the children. Children can tell lies for various reasons from jealousy, fear of getting into trouble, to get out of doing something, etc. But telling lies will only make us feel worse. That's why it's good to talk to our children about telling the truth.
Lying feels like such a burden. One lie has to turn into more, and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Before you know it your feeling weighed down inside and out.
That's exactly how Howard B. Wigglebottom feels in this book. Howard finds himself in various situations where he feels that lying is the best option. Unfortunately for Howard with every lie he tells the monkey on his back grows and grows. Before he knows it he is so weighed down that he can't stand it. He decides the best thing to do is tell the truth and with every truth told the monkey gets smaller and smaller. Once Howard comes clean he feels so happy, and truly learns his lesson about telling the truth. Telling the truth not only makes us feel better about ourselves, but others trust in us more. It creates a better life as a whole, and this is something that we need to be teaching our children. Thankfully Howard B. Wigglebottom is here to help with that.
This is a great learning book for young children. Not only is it instrumental in teaching a valuable lesson about telling the truth, but it's entertaining and the illustrations are wonderfully done. The Howard B. Wigglebottom books have everything you need to not only keep your children intrigued in the story, but teaching them a valuable life lesson at the same time. Howard B. Wigglebottom is a great role model.
This is a great book to read alone to your children, or even for a teacher to read aloud to a class. Finally a book that is entertaining while teaching our future generations important life lessons along the way!
