‘The Honest-to-Goodness Truth’ by Patricia Mc Kissack


The Honest-to-Goodness Truth is a story about a young girl called Libby Louise who is told off by her Mum for telling a ‘fib’. Libby Louise promises to never lie again and to only tell the truth. However, Libby Louise finds that her new rule gets her into trouble and finds herself offending her friends and family. This is a fantastic example of how enacting virtues is not always simple and often requires careful deliberation about how to best act given the situation. This is a wonderful story to explore when honesty is appropriate and how to be honest without being hurtful or unkind.
