A story about honesty and growing from mistakes in words kids can relate to.

A wise, old tree has been watching over this yard for a long, long time. So when she finds a young boy hiding behind her to secretly use his game player, the tree surprises him by striking up a conversation. With the help of the tree's ages old wisdom, the boy learns to listen to his heart and make honest choices he can be proud of--even when no one is looking.

"Because even though his momma didn't know what he'd done, his conscience did," the tree said. "What's a 'conshunts'?" he asked, a little worried now. "A conscience is that voice in your head, and that feeling in your heart, that tells you if something is right or wrong, even when no one is looking," the tree explained. I think I might now that feeling, the boy thought, looking at his game player. "Oh no! I have a conscience!"

Children will chuckle as they read about the boy's misadventures, and will feel the emotions of a situation they've probably been in themselves. Through humor, beautiful pictures, and a few surprises, the boy learns about honesty, and about growing from his mistakes.
Written for children grades K-4, Talking with Trees books include supersize pictures that engage children emotionally, helping them learn how to use their hearts and minds to guide them toward building good character traits. The included discussion guide helps parents and teachers expand on the story to talk about children's own experiences building good character. Free supporting teaching materials are available at talkingtreebooks.com

From the Author:

Do you ever struggle with the right words to teach your children how to grow up to be good people? How do you explain honesty to a 5-year old? Well, while raising 4 children, I got to experiment--a lot--with how to teach honesty, respect, responsibility, and other good traits. After a while, (really, after subjecting my kids to countless lectures they didn't understand), I finally found a way to communicate these important life lessons. So save yourself and your kids some hassle, and perhaps some future therapy sessions. Try out the Talking with Trees books. I bet your kids will relate to these character building stories since they are based on the real life situations all four of our children grew through. I hope you enjoy.
 

About the Author:

Colleen will tell you that having four kids is great because you can say things like, “It is not ok to roast marshmallows over my scented candle,” and because they are a never-ending supply of material for books. After 15 years in marketing and freelance writing, Colleen first turned to children’s book writing as a project to raise money for a foster home in Beijing, China, where her family was living at the time. Super Easy Storytelling, her first children’s book (written with her daughter), is about how to tell stories together on the fly— which was the family’s way of calming the chaos that comes with four kids in a car, restaurant, or really anyplace they needed to behave. The Talking with Trees series is thanks to the kids as well. Colleen wrote the series based on real experiences with tearful children facing the tough business of growing up into good people. Colleen and her husband live in California with a houseful.
