Being Frank

We've been talking a lot about idioms lately and how they're almost like a secret code word because they mean one thing but the words themselves don't indicate this.

We had a very lively discussion today about honesty and the difference between being honest and *too* honest. We read Being Frank, a terrific book about a boy named Frank who learns that when he's too honest, he loses friends and hurts the feelings of others.  

We enjoyed this story very much because even though it fits nicely with our chat about idioms and it was indeed very funny, it had a bigger, more important message and that's this: it's okay to be honest but sometimes you need to add a little sugar.
