Picture Book

Book Jacket Summary
In this companion to "Princess Kim and the Lie That Grew," Kim is brutally honest with painful results. She soon discovers that there is a difference between being honest and always speaking the truth.  

My Thoughts
When "Princess" Kim decides to tell the truth and nothing but the truth there are terrible consequences. Friends, family, and loved ones are hurt when Kim tells the honest truth about things they love. Her dad is proud of the pancakes but Kim tells him they are rubbery. The same with her grandmother and her friend Violet. Kim's teacher has to take her aside and explain that she is hurting people's feelings. Kim is trying to figure out how to tell people nice things about what she insulted people on. You do not have to tell people everything that is on your mind but find a way to criticize without hurting someone's feelings.
This is a good book to start a conversation with a child about honesty and when to use it. I would recommend it to children who might be in the honest phase of their life.
