Being Frank

I really liked Being Frank by Donna Earnhardt. It is a book I normally would have left on the shelf, but in the back of my mind, I thought I remembered someone talking about it. The cover/illustrations are not my favorite style, but I really enjoyed the story. In the book, Frank, is a little too frank - he tells it like it is. This honesty tends to hurt people’s feelings and Frank can’t understand what he is supposed to do. He doesn’t want to lie, but he doesn’t want to hurt anyone either. His grandfather offers him some advice and it works out for him in the end.
I like this book especially paired with a conversation about not always saying everything that you are thinking.
