What this book teaches-Integrity, Truth

My review of the book:

My most favorite children’s book, written by Madonna. A story of integrity and truth. Lying, rumors, and the impact they make on everyone’s life. A child starts a rumor and tries to fix it and finds that it’s very difficult to take back the words. Like the image used of a pillow filled with feathers. when the pillow is opened, the feathers fly everywhere, like when a rumor is started, it’s hard to take the words back.
