I had the wonderful opportunity to once again review a Howard B. Wigglebottom story, this time particularly Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Monkey on His Back with my seven year old twin girls! The artwork in this book is very colorful and enjoyable. The girls and I both loved soaking in all the pictures as we read along! I won't give away too much, but the story involves Howard lying to his teacher thinking he is protecting his friend. Other events happen along the way, but eventually by the end of the story Howard learns that honesty really is the best policy! I'm a total fan of books that I can read with my kids and discuss afterwards important subjects just like this book contains. In fact, the girls and I had a wonderful discussion about why lying isn't okay after reading this book. I encourage you to check out the great line of Wigglebottom books. They are fantastic!
