Book Review

Thy Lyin' Cub is a wonderful book on the dangers of lying! There are a lot of reasons people can think of to lie--one being that they want to seem more impressive or likable than they think they are. But how long can you really hold on to parts about yourself that aren't true? And what happens when the people who thought you were one way find out you're someone else entirely?

This bright book breaks these questions down in simple ways that children will have a blast reading as they learn an important lesson: it's so much better to just be yourself! There's no need to lie to make people like you, and they certainly won't once they learn you've lied. The truth is always safer, and much better in every way, even if at first it doesn't seem like it would be easier!
