This story is about a puppet maker that makes a puppet and names him Pinocchio but then he turns into a real boy. My favorite part about this story is how Pinocchio's nose grows when he lies. This story would be a great story to tell to lower elementary to teach them the consequences of lying.

Pinocchio has long been one of my favorites. I received a set of 4 records with 8 classics stories when I was 8 and one of the stories was Pinocchio and I've loved that story ever since. This is the story of Pinocchio, a little puppet boy made of wood who has great adventures and yearns to be a "real" boy.

The book itself includes other adventures not included in the movie. And your kid's will love following along with Pinocchio's adventures as he learns about being honest, obedient and love. Much of Pinocchio's problems start with curiosity and peer pressure just like you're kid's. But ultimately his love of Geppeto and his need to obey wins over taunts and encouragement from his new found "friends" to do what he thinks he wants to do.

Pinocchio is a great 2nd book to read to your child. Each chapter is almost a story in itself and you can begin working with your child on their reading comprehension and on remembering what happened during your last reading session. There are parts of the book that might be a little scary for your children so you may want to read it first.
