About the Book

Publisher’s Synopsis: Acknowledging and owning up to a mistake is a very difficult task for children—and it’s not always easy for adults, either!

In this most recent installment of the popular Dragon series from Clever, Tell the Truth, Dragon introduces a situation in which Dragon does something that she’s not supposed to do, and then blames someone else for the mistake. Gentle text prompts readers to encourage Dragon to tell the truth and apologize for her mistake, even though it’s a tough thing to do. Dragon realizes her mistake and offers an apology—and then more than makes up for it!

Designed to be a read-aloud, parents will take pleasure in the playful text as much as children will enjoy following the prompts to interact with Dragon. The whimsical and colorful illustrations enable the dragon to jump off the page and will delight readers with her personality on every page.
