What’s a Friend to Do?

Sprout and Twig are late for school, so Twig ignores their teacher’s instructions and takes a shortcut. When his friend doesn’t show up in time for class, Sprout lies to their teacher about what happened. But as time passes and Twig still doesn’t come, Sprout grows worried. Should he tell the truth, even if it means his friend will get in trouble for disobeying?

This lively adventure teaches children ages 4 to 7 the importance of always telling the truth and helps them remember that rules are made for a reason.
