Our friend Freddie the Fly is having a hard time. He can’t figure out why his honesty is causing his friends and family to feel hurt; after-all, isn’t he supposed to tell the truth? Fortunately, Freddie’s Bug Scout Master has a new patch for him to earn – the Truth or Care patch. Join Freddie as he learns that it’s okay to have and share your opinion, but to be a good friend, you should factor the feelings of others into your comments. This social skills story is great for students in grades K through 5 as they learn along with Freddie on how to think before speaking.  

Speech-Language Pathologist and expert Kimberly Delude proves once again that navigating social situations can be hard for children (and bugs!), and provides simplified steps to balancing which thoughts to share, which to flush, and how to balance Truth with Care. Included at the end of the picture book are tips for parents and educators to help children distinguish what they should say and what should be left unsaid.
