Deskripsi

Frank follows the motto, "Honesty is the best policy." He tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Frank never lies to his schoolmates, he always tells the truth to adults, and he’s always honest with police officers. The balancing act of finding tact, that fine line between telling the truth and telling too much truth, is the main theme of this story, and it's very funny—although not necessarily to his friend Dotti whose freckles remind Frank of the Big Dipper, or to the teacher who hears that her breath smells like onions, or to the principal who is told that his toupee looks like a weasel. No one is quite as impressed with Frank’s honesty as he thinks they should be. He is sweet and straightforward, and, well, very frank, but with everyone annoyed at him, Frank is now honestly unhappy. He decides to visit his confidante and pal, Grandpa Ernest, who has a history of frankness himself. With a few lessons from Grandpa, Frank begins to understand that the truth is important, but so is not being hurtful. With amusing characters and expressive artwork, this story tells the powerful message of finding the good in everything—a lesson that sends compassion and understanding to take the place of rudeness in the complex concept of truth.

    I absolutely loved this book. This is a great book to teach students about honesty. I really enjoyed the illustrations and the writing in this book. This book also pushed readers to think of situations and reflect on themselves. Frank learned that it was important to always tell the truth to people. This got him in trouble with friends, family, and teachers. The illustrations in the book were bright and engaging. The writing inside of the book was written and is in various places throughout the pages. This kept the reader engaged and interested in what was happening throughout the book. This book lets the readers reflect within him or herself and helps the student realize that honesty is important by being able to relate with Frank. “I still think honesty is the best policy. But now I know its best served with more sugar…” The main idea of this story is to show the importance of being honest and how it relates to the feelings of friends and family.

    This is a really cute book. The illustrations are colorful and engaging, and the message is super important. The concept of being honest can be very confusing to children. They are told to always tell the truth, however, sometimes when they tell the truth they hurt someone’s feelings. This book is a great way to explain to children the concept of honesty. The message of the book is being honest without being mean. My favorite quote in the book was when Frank said, “I still think honesty is the best policy but now I know it’s best served with more sugar and less pepper.”

    Being Frank is Donna Earnhardt's first picture book to be placed into the hands of eager children, and it is a beautiful one.The story begins with these words: Frank was always frank. “Honesty is the best policy,” he said.While that motto is a very good one, it got Frank into big trouble. Although he knew how to be honest, he didn’t know anything about tact. Eventually, everyone was upset with him, he was being ignored by his friends, and he didn’t understand what to do about it. Enter … his grandfather. Yay! for grandparents! ;) What he learned from his grandfather Ernest changed how Frank handled his honesty so that he could still be honest but without hurting people’s feelings.Although Being Frank is a story with a moral, it does not come across in a preachy teachy way that could put children off. It is entertaining and funny while getting the point across.Donna has everything in this book that should appeal to a child. Words used are fun and a little challenging, there are amusing situations, she uses great names that describe the characters – another example being Mr. Wiggins, the school principal who wears a toupée – and she has brought out true feelings expressed by her characters. It is believable and entertaining for children (and grown-ups, too.)A fabulous picture book story falls short when there are not great illustrations to back it up. Well, there is nothing amiss in this book! The characters in Donna Earnhardt’s Being Frank are brought to life through the bright and colourful illustrations of Andrea Castellani. (His name is pronounced An-dray-a.) When my grandson and I read this book together he was busily taking it all in, there is so much to see and enjoy that goes with the words.Being Frank by Donna Earnhardt is a wonderful book to add to your bookshelf.

    Children are always told to tell the truth. But there are certain truths (how we look, how we act, what we are wearing) that aren't always necessary to share and can be painful to hear.So how can a child learn when to tell the truth and when to keep parts of the truth to himself?That's the charm of this little story. Frank is…well, frank. And it gets him in trouble. Big trouble. Sent home from school. His mom mad at him. His friends angry with him. It is Frank's grandfather who helps him out of his trouble, helping him learn when to share truths with others and when to keep those truths to one's self. Very, very helpful book for children and parents to read together and talk about. With illustrations that will delight both children and parents.Thank you to the publisher for this beautiful review copy.
