Great book and funny too!

This is a great book! It teaches about lying but in a funny way. One of the lines paraphrased says that "and they cubs told the biggest whopper ever told in Bear County." That always gets a laugh in our house - "whopper" is quite funny to a toddler! But after you explain it, it has a new meaning and really provides a way to explain lying. This book has brother and sister playing ball in the house when they're not supposed to and wind up breaking mama's favorite lamp. Then, they lie about it and lose mama's trust. After they apologize, they don't do it again but they learn that they have to regain their mother's trust in their word all over again. It's a fantastic book to teach about lying and the results thereof. I highly recommend this book -it's read almost nightly in our house.

To tell the truth?

When brother and sister are playing soccer in the house they end up breaking mama's favorite lamp! They try making up a lie to get of of the blame. But can they keep their story straight>?<p>This book teaches kids how it is better to tell the truth and not to lie no matter what they have done. It is a great lesson to me learned and I suggest it for any child!

A Great Lesson for Children

The Berenstain Bears and the Truth is a wonderful story for children of any ages. It teaches children a very important lesson,always to tell the truth no matter what and if a lie is told, it would always come back to haunt you. I greatly recommend this book for children.

Teaching but not preaching

The Berenstain Bears books are my son's favorite this month (preferences at this age die quickly). Each of the books has a nice story to tell, with a morale that is not hard to communicate to a 3 or 4 year old. The good illustrations make reading the stories fun and the format of thebook is perfect for travel, when you don't need a 5 pound children's treasury to carry along as well.

Berenstain Bears and the Truth

Our family enjoys this book because it uses a common situation (a lamp broken by a ball kicked in the house) to illustrate the importance of telling the truth. Especially appealling was the end- where the cubs learn that mother is more concerned with their honestey than their accidents. The message is that we don't need to be perfect, but we do need to tell the truth.
