Interactive stories provide incredible opportunities to get children actively engaged in storytime. They hook young readers, grabbing their attention and pulling them right into the story. The rest is easy. When kids are involved in stories, they listen and learn!
An interactive series I simply adore is Bianca Schulze’s Dragon series. Each book in the series offers kids the opportunity to work on social-emotional learning as they listen to a great read-aloud. The best part? The books are so engaging that young readers don’t even realize they’re learning important life skills!
The latest book in this adorable series is Tell the Truth, Dragon!, which is a fabulous story about honesty and owning up to mistakes we make.

Can a guilty dragon fess up to his actions?
In Tell the Truth, Dragon! Dragon does something she is not supposed to do.
Chef has baked a cake that looks scrumptious. So scrumptious, in fact, that Dragon is quite tempted to sneak a taste.
The reader thus has an important job to do: help keep Dragon distracted and occupied long enough to keep her away from the tasty treat. Schulze sucks readers right into the story here, getting them eager to keep Dragon from succumbing to her impulses.

Being honest is hard!
When Dragon does sneak that taste, she blames someone else for her poor choices!
How common is this situation? How many of us can see our own kids in the story? This is what I love about Tell the Truth, Dragon! It’s relatable and authentic, making it read-aloud gold.
Dragon knows she messed up. And though it’s hard to apologize, she eventually does (with your reader’s encouragement, of course!)
Even better? Dragon then goes a step further by fixing her mistake. She helps to bake a new cake. It’s so crucial to teach kids this valuable step – that words and apologies are important, but taking actual action to fix mistakes you made is the best way to show you’re sorry.

Being honest isn’t easy, and saying I’m sorry can feel downright impossible. But Tell the Truth, Dragon! normalizes the fear children face when they have to make an apology and gives them a road map to come back to as they learn how to make up for their own poor choices.
Happy reading and learning!
