Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite It was summer vacation and the Angelino family decided to take a vacation with some family and friends. They went to the campground at the local state park and they played backyard games like badminton, horseshoes, and hide-and-go-seek. The Angelinos had a lot of fun swimming, fishing, going on nature walks, and having movie nights at the Amphitheater. One day the three Angelino boys took a nature trail with their dad. The three boys walked ahead of their dad and they were soon out of sight. The boys saw a lot of animals, swung on a vine hanging from a tree, and picked up some fallen apples from the apple trees on their way back home. They all had dinner and the children went to bed. Then suddenly there was a crash. What was the loud bang that scared the adults? A Trail of Honesty by J.A. Angelo is an adorable story that conveys a good message to young readers; that of being honest, explaining how actions have consequences, and being responsible. The illustrations are delightful and they bring the story alive and make the concept clear to readers. The parent/child discussion at the end of the book is fun, interactive, and educational, and is perfect to use in classrooms during interactive sessions to help children understand the importance of being honest. It is a perfect storybook for parents to have in their personal collection to make children understand the importance of their actions and how to be honest with parents.

A great kids' story on the importance of honesty (go figure, from the title). This is easy for kids to understand as it is told in a fun, interesting way so that even a younger child could understand. I highly recommend this.

The story is cute. Every other page is illustrated with only a little text on the non-illustrated pages, making it easy to keep a small child's attention. For the same reason, it may be a little boring for an older child. Some of the words were a little big for an early independent reader. As for the lesson in honesty, it's a good lesson, but it came off a bit stronger than I would have liked. Knowing my kids, if I were to deliver a message that strong on my own, I'd get some push back. In a book, it's a little more forgivable, but I wish the story at least eased them into it. The only real issue I have with the book is the inaccuracy about consequences. In the book, consequences are defined with the idea that they happen because of something bad that was done. In reality, there are both positive and negative consequences that occur all the time based on all actions. I frequently point this out to my kids to encourage appropriate actions by pointing out the potential positive consequences of doing the right thing.
