Item Description...
After promising never to lie, Libby learns that it's not always necessary to blurt out the whole truth either

Publishers Description
"Tell the truth and shame the devil," Libby's mama has told her. So what"ever" is Libby doing wrong? Ever since she started telling only the truth, the whole world seems to be mad at her. First it's her best friend, Ruthie Mae, who gets upset when Libby tells all their friends that Ruthie Mae has a hole in her sock. Then Willie gives her an ugly look when she tells the teacher he hasn't done his homework. It seems that telling the truth isn't always so simple.
Children will sympathize with Libby as she struggles to figure out that even though it's always wrong to tell a lie, there's a right and a wrong way to tell the truth. Giselle Potter's naively stubborn illustrations perfectly capture this humorous and poignant story by award-winning author Patricia C. McKissack.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Cute Story  Nov 13, 2006
But it does include a kid getting spanked for punishment, so if you are a "No-spanking" house you should be warned.
The Honest-to-Goodness Truth  Nov 13, 2001
Libby's lie to her mother came out so easily, "like it was greased with warm butter". After spending the day on the porch for lying, Libby decides to tell nothing but the truth. Her truth-telling goes overboard, causing loss of cherished friendships both young and old. Telling everyone that Thomas got his lunch money from the teacher, for example, isn't exactly what her mother had in mind. It is only when Libby is confronted with the hurtful truth of another that she comes around to understanding that the honest-to-goodness truth told for the right reasons is never wrong.

The simple illustrations lend themselves to understanding the story line. Giselle Potter used pencil, ink, gouache, gesso and watercolor to create the pictures that my young daughter and her older brother love to look at over and over again.

This is a great theme with a fun story line done in a multi-cultural setting.

Honest-to-Goodness Truth  May 24, 2001
My second graders absolutely loved this book. I read it aloud to the class and then they wrote a response. They were asked to tell the lesson of this story, and to relate how they had been like either Libby Louise or a victim. The children were very honest in their responses. I think this book is a must for any classroom discussion. Though it is recommended for 4-8 year olds, the message would be good for all ages.
The Honest-To-Goodness Truth  Mar 29, 2000
Terrific book and a great read-aloud! I read this book to my elementary class. The children loved it! It provided a wonderful "spring board" for a rich classroom discussion on truthfulness.
