Hello Goodbye and A Very Little Lie by Christianne Jones

Larry is a liar.  He lies to everyone....his mom, kids at the park, strangers at the grocery store.  One day he announces, "....I can swim all the way across the lake."  But this time someone stops him.  "No, you can't," a little girl replies.  EEEK!  Larry has never had anyone actually challenge his lies like that before.  He is stuck. "Prove it.  My ball floated to the other side of the lake.  Go get it for me."  Larry knows he is backed in a corner and must admit that he has lied.....but so has the little girl!  Can these two "liars" learn a lesson and overcome their lying ways?  What a practical book....NOT that children ever lie.....noooooo.  A great way to open up the discussion about lying whether it is your own child OR a child in your classroom.
