Picture Books for Character Traits - Honesty

Welcome to the first installment of the blog series - Picture Books that Inspire Good Character Traits!

At our school, we call them the Pillars of Virtue, and we have six of them:
  1. Honesty
  2. Courtesy
  3. Courage
  4. Perseverance
  5. Self-Government
  6. Service

Since last year was my first year, I decided to try and find a bunch of books to read throughout the year to attach to these pillars. Most of these books can be used for multiple character traits, so use these posts as a guide. 

Each pillar will be in a separate post, but in each post, I will link all of the posts so you can easily find the ones you are looking for!

Today's Character Trait is Honesty

Kevin - When Sid makes another mess and his mom asks him about it, he makes the quick decision to blame Kevin, the furry yellow and pink friend. He soon finds out that even thought Kevin's world is make-believe, his feelings are not. 

Princess K.I.M - When Kim starts school, she tells everyone she is a princess and she wear a tiara to school and that her grandmother is a queen. Now everyone at school wants to meet a real queen and Kim is faced with what to do with her lie.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf - The tale as old as time...and one that as a parent and a teacher, I have referenced many of times. This is a classic about not joking around about something serious, because when it actually does happen, no one will believe you. 

A Bad Case of Stripes -  This book works with the trait of Courage as well. I like it when the students can see multiple traits in one book. Camilla Cream LOVES her lima beans but is too afraid to be honest about it, for fear of other's opinions. Then her world is turned upside down...until she is honest and admits home much she loves lima beans. 

The Empty Pot - Oh, gosh. This book is so good. When everyone else is cheating to make themselves look good, but then you do the right thing, even though you don't think you'll "get the prize." And THAT actually gets you the prize. What a great book to show that just because everyone else is doing it, doesn't mean you have to, too. 

Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse - Being honest is hard to do when you think you're going to get in trouble. But that's exactly the kind of character trait we want to instill in our children. You can get in a lot less trouble if you're honest than if you lie and get caught. 

The Colour Thief - Zot lives in a land without color. He sees the world with color and thinks it'd be a good idea to steal their color for himself. Such a great lesson about honesty. 

A Hen for Izzy Pippik - A story about a girl who finds a hen and instead of giving her back to her owner right away, she decides to keep her and take care of her until the owner comes for her. Then mayhem ensues. This is a great story about doing the right thing.

The Sad Little Fact - This story is about a little fact that can not lie. But no one believes him, and all these "lies" were created and were running around the world sharing their "facts." But they keep trying and they get back out there and turn the world a little brighter with their true facts. 

A Bike Like Sergio's - Ruben REALLY wants a bike like Sergio's. So when he finds money that fell out of someone's purse, he picks it up and puts it in his pocket instead of returning it. But as the story continues, his conscience gets to him about the money. 

I hope you have found a few books that will help you with presenting Honesty to your students or children.

I’m writing this review in appreciation to this great credit specialist DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION I can’t stop thanking them for the good job they did on my credit. I had been suffering from financial bondage until I met them. They promised to turn my situation around and they kept their promise. Every negative item on my credit report ( Hard inquiries, late payments, credit card debts and charge-off etc) has been cleared and my score raised within 8 days.

I am delighted I stumbled into great reviews about XAPCREDITSOLUTION AT GMAIL on how he helps fix credit, chex system, DUI repair and other credit related issues. After I did my due diligence, I contacted XAP Credit Solution through the above email and narrated my problem and how I would want to proceed with fixing my credit report with XAP. He confirmed he will increase my score from low 540 to 780 which he did in less than two weeks, he removed all the collections and charge offs I had and also added some tradelines to my report. I completely recommend XAP to everyone in need of a credit specialist. Do well to let XAP know David Lane referred you.

I strongly JERRYLINK CREDIT GROUP: I think they are the best in terms of credit repair. I had worked with different credit companies in the past, but there was no significant change on my credit report. So many credit forums recommended DYI, I tried every credit hack in the book all o no avail. A real estate agent introduced me to Mr. Jerry, who has been helping his clients. Mr. Jerry and his team helped me erase all the negative things on my report, and raised my score to excellent score across all three bureaus. I’m recommending as promised.

Do not invest in any trading platform, there is nothing such as get rich quick, it doesn't always end well. I was also a victim to this kind of scam. An Asian girl introduced me to ibitminers and i got really deep into their shit and all i can say is these scammers are good at what they do. I was allowed to withdraw a little amount which i believed was to build my trust but they sucked me dry and i never got my capital after all was said and done. I lost a ton of asset and when i reported to local authorities i was told since crypto is untraceable, there is nothing they can do about it. I couldn't get any help from them until i contracted the service of a professional ethical hacker. He hacked into the eth wallet address i made payment to and retrieved my stolen crypto and he showed me the transaction history of these scammers, I was in shock.

The need for more legitimate hacking companies are rising each passing day because of the magnitude of scams being run on the Internet. I know what I went through before I was able to contact Osecybersailing to work on my case after getting scammed multiple times and trying to retrieve back my lost investment funds. After I have invested $670k usd with a fraudulent crypto investment company and i lost everything in the space of one month and got scammed again and again trying to find a solution which wasn't easy to come by given the circumstances that brought about the incident, getting scammed multiple times is never a good experience for anyone involved which was what exactly happened to me when I got scammed investing into crypto currency. Many posing on the Internet as hacking companies aren't really what they are because most of them are scammers waiting for a prey to devour, I got referred to reach out to Osecybersailing through a friend and after I investigated about their legitimacy I came across many of their testimony from their satisfied clients that got their lost investment funds retrieved working with this legitimate and evergreen hacking institute which also changed my story helping me retrieve back my lost investment funds. Many of the testimony really were saying great and worthy things about how the company saved them from financial loss, I decided to hire them after many consideration and they didn't disappoint me by making the choice of choosing them after what I have experienced lately trying to get my funds back from the scammers. They proved they can be trusted with the recovery of lost investment funds which is why I wrote this down for other victims of scam who wishes to ever retrieve back their lost investment funds to let Osecybersailing solve their case, they're worthy and has what it takes to restore back your funds and peace of mind. If you also wish to check your partner Whatsapp conversation to know if he/she is cheating then Osecybersailing is the best team for you.
If you find yourself lost in the depths of lost Bitcoin, facebook and Whatsapp hacking to catch your cheating partner, let Osecybersailing's team guide you towards the light of redemption.

A revolution in banking has been brought about by the digital era, with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin taking center stage. But there are also risks associated with this emerging field, the most frightening of which being the possibility of losing digital assets. This is when Osecybersailing and it's team steps in like a shining knight, equipped with the formidable weapon of Bitcoin recovery. My valuable Bitcoin was stolen via a technical error, leaving me hopeless. My dreams were almost dashed by the cold reality of irreversible blockchain transactions. However, there was a ray of hope that emerged from the shadows when I came across Osecybersailing and it's team. Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience, their team of professionals painstakingly navigated the blockchain maze, following even the smallest digital traces of my misplaced funds. The fact that my Bitcoin appeared, safe and sound, back in my wallet in a very short amount of time was a credit to their commitment and competence. It restored my faith in the security and reliability of the crypto ecosystem. But my testimony is more than just a celebration of Osecybersailing technical abilities. It also serves as a rallying cry for ethical cryptocurrency stewardship.
