To Tell the Truth

C.J. in a Pickle

by Robert Bauer

Reading level: Nine to twelve year-olds

Hardcover: 27 pages

Publisher: Tate Publishing (August 3, 2010)

Source of book: Author

What to expect: Boyhood antics, moral dilemmas

In C.J. in a Pickle, author Robert Bauer introduces us to C.J., a highly imaginative and cheeky young boy. C.J. comes home from school and his mother notices that something is amiss. C.J. thinks that if he tells the truth he’ll get into bigger trouble than if he tells a creative re-interpretation of the events. C.J.’s mom doesn’t fall for it and despite his best efforts to craft a believable story, he gets sent to his room. He thinks of a few more artful explanations and then an unbelievable thing happens to change his mind, but I won’t give away the ending! Robert Bauer does a good job of tackling the issues of lying and punishment. I remember having the following dilemma: I did something wrong for which I would surely receive punishment if caught. If I lied about it, I might get away with it. But if I got caught, my punishment would be worse because I had lied. Better to tell the truth then, right? Except that more often than not, I tried to lie first. It was a hard lesson to learn, and one that I’m going to have to teach my own children at some point. Books like this one will hopefully help!


New Kids Book From GCC Author
CJ In A Pickle

By Michelle Wegner

Robert Bauer, a guy in our church authored this creative and funny story about a boy named C.J. that ends up “in a pickle”. He cut his own hair in a moment of spontaneity, and tries to lie his way out of owning up to the unfortunate act by telling elaborate tales about “how it happened.”

In the end, he confesses to his Mom that he did indeed cut his own hair, and he admitted he made up the other crazy incidents to cover up his mistake.

I read this story to my own girls, and they loved it. Isabelle especially liked the talking elephant at the end that convinces C.J. to tell the truth. The hidden squirrels on each page make reading the story with a child is a fun game as well. An mp3 version of the story will be available with the purchase of the book soon after the book is released August 3. How fun is that?

I’m so happy for Rob! He’s a teacher and I think it’s great that he’s written this book to help illustrate an important lesson about telling the truth. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the truth. This book is a great tool to get a conversation started about truth telling with your own child or your class if you are a teacher, or if you just generally like to read books to kids.

You can support this fabulous author and purchase the book on his site… http://www.cjinapickle.com or at the Tate Publishing Website http://www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore/book.php?w=978-1-61566-417-7

If you attend GCC, the book is available in our bookstore. If you don’t attend GCC, the book can be purchased at Barnes and Noble, Borders, Amazon.com, Target.com and Family Christian Stores after August 3.
