*****   Truth or consequences   July 28, 2013

Young Ruthy had developed a bad habit of lying to her parents and refusing to take responsibility for her actions. Instead of responding by yelling and screaming or with a spanking, Ruthy's dad used a bit of psychology to turn the tables on Ruthy and show her why lying had consequences.

Would dad's approach work with Ruthy? That's the key question in this story by Sari Barel that teaches a valuable lesson about why being honest and truthful is the best policy for both kids and grownups. It's a short, simple story that should hold a kid's attention long enough to make the point. The colorful, cartoon-like illustrations complement the text nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars The old familiar `It wasn't me...!' August 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Author Sari Barel takes a unique stance on teaching children how to tell the truth and she involves parents in a most thoughtful and constructive way. Together with illustrator Neda Fuchedzhieva she has crated a fun book that gives parents insight on how to correct a certain behavioral problem - and have fun doing it.

Ruthy fibs. Her answer to whether she has eaten more than the allowed number of sweets after meals, of picking up her toys after playing, or painting on walls, gabbing a ball form her sister, annoying the family dog, her answer is a ready `It wasn't me!" Her father has an idea: he states that starting today it is OK not to keep family rules and not to tell the truth. Ruthy thinks she has triumphed, but on a trip into town she asks for an ice cream, and chocolate and a lollipop to which her father says `no problem.' But when her father doesn't buy her anything she is upset, saying `you promised' to her smart father who replies `we agreed not to tell the truth, remember?' When Ruthy asks her father to play he promises he will, but then watches TV instead making Ruthy declare she wants her real dad back, not the one who doesn't keep promises, and voila! Ruthy gets it and her father shows her that he is very proud of the lesson she has figured out - `It was really fun to tell the truth.'

Not only is this little story entertaining but it also carries a very unique way of learning how to stop not telling the truth. This book is a joint venture for children and parents, and as usual Sari Barel handles it very well indeed. Grady Harp, August 13

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but something was missing June 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book: Truthy Ruthy by author Sari Barel, I can see why it was a best seller. However, there was something missing to me. The author showed how the aged old "it wasn't me" comes out in children but in between the "not me" and "dad teaching the kid a lesson" there was a missing piece. I agree with one of the other reviews it seemed rushed.

I think this book will be a good quick tool to teach children not to lye. And the life learned lesson of how it feels when your parents return the favor.

Good job.

I read this to my 8 year old daughter last night. The concept behind the book is a good one but something was lacking in the delivery. Picture books need to have great pictures and the problem with this one is that there are not original pictures on every page. It is the same few pictures recycled repeatedly. Some of the language chosen seemed a little off. "Dad hugged Ruthy strongly" just sounded odd when I read it. Several times I wondered at the author's word choices in this book for young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Very Creative"........... July 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is a creative and funny way for parents and children to deal with telling lies...It's shows how the Dad, taught "Ruthy" to become "Truthy" with verbal lessons and reverse psychology...When a small child fibs and starts not to tell the truth it can become a bad habit...Screaming and yelling at them will get you no where..This author's children's book will show conflict between Mom and Dad over decision making...How to handle this problem in a way of not raising a hand..The illustrations are bright, colorful and cute..Especially, when Dad changes the rules on Ruthy and says it's OK now not to tell the "truth"...My niece and I were laughing because Dad starts to grow a long nose like "Pinocchio" in the mirror..He makes promises, doesn't keep them, and Ruthy doesn't get her way..

Will Ruthy finally learn a very important lesson...

I highly recommend this book, because it will hold your childs attention and engage them into talking.......

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Graphics - Good Message August 10, 2014
By UBizz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this book for free after seeing it on the Kindle Buffett list. I did not know the author or the series but thought that it might be something that would be good for my 3 year old. The story is about Ruthy making it a habit of doing things and then saying "It wasn't me". She makes this a habit to the point that her Dad devises a plan to teach her a lesson where he doesn't follow the rules or keep his promises and Ruthy soon learns she doesn't like being lied to and decides to turn over a new leaf. In the end Mom gives them both certificates of excellence Dad for his plan and Ruthy for telling the truth.
