This is a good story for children aged between 5 and 7. Nice simple, credible, recognisable story and scenario. Good cunning plan by the dad leads Ruth to some reflection on her behaviour.

An interesting story and a good message. Worked very well on the iPAD for my daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars The old familiar `It wasn't me...!' 16 Aug. 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Author Sari Barel takes a unique stance on teaching children how to tell the truth and she involves parents in a most thoughtful and constructive way. Together with illustrator Neda Fuchedzhieva she has crated a fun book that gives parents insight on how to correct a certain behavioral problem - and have fun doing it.

Ruthy fibs. Her answer to whether she has eaten more than the allowed number of sweets after meals, of picking up her toys after playing, or painting on walls, gabbing a ball form her sister, annoying the family dog, her answer is a ready `It wasn't me!" Her father has an idea: he states that starting today it is OK not to keep family rules and not to tell the truth. Ruthy thinks she has triumphed, but on a trip into town she asks for an ice cream, and chocolate and a lollipop to which her father says `no problem.' But when her father doesn't buy her anything she is upset, saying `you promised' to her smart father who replies `we agreed not to tell the truth, remember?' When Ruthy asks her father to play he promises he will, but then watches TV instead making Ruthy declare she wants her real dad back, not the one who doesn't keep promises, and voila! Ruthy gets it and her father shows her that he is very proud of the lesson she has figured out - `It was really fun to tell the truth.'

Not only is this little story entertaining but it also carries a very unique way of learning how to stop not telling the truth. This book is a joint venture for children and parents, and as usual Sari Barel handles it very well indeed. Grady Harp, August 13

5.0 out of 5 stars "Very Creative"........... 28 July 2013
By Robin Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This story is a creative and funny way for parents and children to deal with telling lies...It's shows how the Dad, taught "Ruthy" to become "Truthy" with verbal lessons and reverse psychology...When a small child fibs and starts not to tell the truth it can become a bad habit...Screaming and yelling at them will get you no where..This author's children's book will show conflict between Mom and Dad over decision making...How to handle this problem in a way of not raising a hand..The illustrations are bright, colorful and cute..Especially, when Dad changes the rules on Ruthy and says it's OK now not to tell the "truth"...My niece and I were laughing because Dad starts to grow a long nose like "Pinocchio" in the mirror..He makes promises, doesn't keep them, and Ruthy doesn't get her way..

Will Ruthy finally learn a very important lesson...

I highly recommend this book, because it will hold your childs attention and engage them into talking.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique approach to teaching why its crucial to ALWAYS tell the truth. it clicked for my granddaughter the first time we read it. 13 Feb. 2015
By J Yohe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am raising my 6 year old granddaughter & She has been having issues with lying. I bought the book Truthy Ruthy yesterday & read it to her last night. The way the author took the issue of a child lying & masterfully showed how different a child felt about it when the lies are being told by an adult. In this story the child Ruthy begins telling lies. She denies it obviously but doesn't change when confronted with truth. Her Dad has a unique approach telling her that from now on its ok to lie. She thinks it's great. That is...until her Dad lies to her & doesn't keep his word as to what he's promised to give her or do for her. It breaks her heart. The clever child finally realizes how horrible it is to not be able to believe or trust in those she has contact with. Many of the things in the book are things I have tried to communicate to my granddaughter, but it was only after we read the book that it truly clicked for her. I am grateful for help that came in the form of such a clever, sweetly written, and colorfully illustrated book. I strongly recommend this book. My granddaughter didn't want me to read it, but I gave her no choice. After I read it, she not only admitted to liking the book, but it opened the doors of communication between us with the uncomfortable topic of her lying. Even better, she decided she wants to be like Ruthy & always tell the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Book for Breaking the Habit of Not Telling the Truth 14 July 2015
By Lisa's Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A clever story showing how Ruthy's parents dealt with her habit of saying, "It wasn't me" when she was asked her involvement in such things as taking more than her share of sweets, not picking up after playing, teasing her sister, and even annoying the dog.

In order to put a stop to this seemingly unending web of lies, Ruthy's father institutes a plan declaring it's perfectly fine not to follow family rules and...you'll have to read the book to find out what happens.

Readers will like this story very much, both parents and kids alike. The illustrations are lovely, kid-friendly, engaging and adds to the storyline. A great book for kids to quickly and easily learn the truth about telling the truth.
