    Being Honest Is Best

    rebus story of girl telling the truth

    Illustration by Kathryn Mitter

    Verity loves her name. Verity’s name means “truth”! When Verity spilled her soup, she told Mom right away. Then she helped clean it up. When Verity broke her brother’s toy boat, she said, “Sorry.” She helped fix it with glue. When Verity colored on the wall, she told Dad. Now she only colors on paper. Verity feels good when she tells the truth. Verity knows being honest is best!
