Wow, Kristi! You have come up with a great way to get them young'uns to read! I just love the way they can customize

Hi Kristi, What a lovely little book! I found it very engaging and fun for kids (of all ages!) to use. The software was easy to understand and follow, and the resulting personalized book was great fun to read. I can see where it could help a child get a beginner's taste of publishing and perhaps later become an author in their own right. This program not only encourages creativity, it delivers a fine lesson in integrity, too.
Children can become easily bored while reading, but with our customized
e-book, they can change the characters' names to anything they like!
Stir things up and keep your child interested!
The e-book tells a story about a child that lies about having a pet. He or she
enjoys the attention that the classmates give, until the teacher announces
a Pet's Day next Friday! That's when the trouble begins and lessons are learned.
Dear Kristi, After reviewing your ebook software, I find it to be a
wonderful and heartwarming story that should appeal to pre-teenagers,
plus it's an excellent lesson to any child. The ability to plug in the
name of the child and the family as well as their friends names should
make it hugely popular. I know that I was impressed. An excellent book and software that should be a roaring success! Michael Worthington http://theaffiliaterx.com/12steps
Jacob's Monkey - the Trouble with Lying
Here's a video of the beginning of the story:
We recommend that you enjoy this program with your child or grandchild.
Help him or her choose the character names and pet for the story and then
read it through together. The story teaches good morals, so let it spark a good
discussion! But don't just take my word for it...
Here are a few testimonials for the book that this program is based on:
By homeschooldad(Utah, USA) This review is from: Jacob's Monkey: The Trouble with Lying (Volume 2) (Paperback)Wonderfully told story that is part cautionary fable and part smart instruction for telling the truth!
The author does a wonderful job of weaving the storyline with the
ability for any child to follow and understand the sticky situations
that can happen when you tell a lie. This is not put out to make light
of "stretching the truth", "telling a little white lie", or "fibbing".
With a well thought-out style, Ms. Sayles gives a pointed look at a
youngster wanting to fit in, but let's his desire to be better than
others get in the way of what he knows better. The results are handled
well by the author.
Additionally I am impressed, not only with how she handles the boy's
conscious and struggles with how he deals with lie upon lie, but also
with the way the boy's mother and teacher are portrayed as
compassionate adults who offer forgiveness. This is something sorely
lacking in a lot of stories and other media nowadays.
I recommend this book to any parent wanting to give a wonderful story
to help their child understand the trouble with lying. It just might
lead to some great conversations between you!

Jacob Learns Monkeying Around With The Truth Is Wrong, December 12, 2009 By W. Bentrim(Bucks County, PA) This review is from: Jacob's Monkey: The Trouble with Lying (Volume 2) (Paperback)Jacob's Monkey- The Trouble with Lying by Kristi Sayles
Jacob tells his class he has a pet monkey. Jacob is fibbing and this
story details the consequence of his lying and clearly demonstrates why
it is wrong to lie.
I enjoyed the use of photos of real children for the illustrations in
the story. I think it will enable the reader to better identify with
Jacob and his dilemma.
Jacob discovers that one lie tends to lead to another and suddenly you
are in a bit of a pickle. Jacob discovers that honesty is the best
policy and reconciles with all those to whom he lied. It is a
delightful story of right and wrong that clearly demonstrates the need
I recommend the book
Subtle But Important Lessons About Lying!By A. Stuart This review is from: Jacob's Monkey: The Trouble with Lying (Volume 2) (Paperback)What
I like most about this book is that it feels so realistic. It's easy to
understand why Jacob lies in the first place and then to feel empathy
for him once he realizes the complications that result. My favorite
part about this book is how Jacob eventually realizes he has no choice
but to admit his lie and the relief and joyful surprise when his
classmates don't hold it against him. Lying is such an easy thing to do
for kids and this book will help them understand why its so important
to tell the truth, even after one
out of 5 starsDelightfully EntertainingBy Amy Weaver This review is from: Jacob's Monkey: The Trouble with Lying (Volume 2) (Paperback)I
found Jacob's Monkey to be a wonderful read with delightful humor and a
realistic scenario all wrapped up in a lesson of morality! The book
makes its point about dishonesty while detailing the web little Jacob
has wound himself up into. My children and I laughed all the way to the
end and look forward to the next publication by Kristi
out of 5 starsJacob's MonkeyBy lady of fortune(humble, tx USA) This review is from: Jacob's Monkey: The Trouble with Lying (Volume 2) (Paperback)This
was a very well told story of a little boy who invents the tale of
having a monkey and then has to figure out what to do when the teacher
wants them all to bring their pets on pet day. It's so believable that
the whole time I could just see my 7 year old doing exactly something
out of 5 starsGREAT LESSON LEARNED!By Novelist(Los Angeles) This review is from: Jacob's Monkey: The Trouble with Lying (Volume 2) (Paperback)JACOB'S
MONKEY: THE TROUBLE WITH LYING is a book that really hits at the heart
of the matter about lying to get attention. Is there a child alive who
has not bent the truth a bit in order to be a class star? If there is,
I'd like to meet that child. If your own child has issues around
truth-telling, this delightful morality tale is for you.
