This book introduces Tommy who is five years old. He has an older brother Nao who is three years older!
As the story unfolds the reader will enjoy lovely rhyming sentences and colorful illustrations to tell the story about honesty.
Nao sets a good example for his younger brother, teaching him about honesty.
I think it’s important to teach young children about the virtue of honesty. This is a simply written story that is easy to understand.
Nao helps Tommy to learn that once you lie, it’s hard to gain trust.
Tommy also shows Nao how honesty is important when you admit you did something wrong it is easier to fix the problem and make amends.
The boys devise a signal making a T sign with their hands. This gives Nao the courage to tell the truth to their mother.
Nao is tempted to do some thing wrong and decides to be kind at the end of the book. I liked how the book ended.
I’m sure children can relate to these different scenarios as Nao is learning how to be honest in different ways.
I highly recommend this book for a young reader. It is thoughtfully written and highlights the good virtue of honesty.
