The Mommy Dot by J.M. Dazzles is a cute little story about always telling the truth. Sam, a young boy, thinks that he can sneak out of bed to watch TV without his mother finding out. When he thinks he’s fooled his mother, she teaches him a valuable lesson about being honest. She tells him about a purple dot that shows up on his forehead when he lies to her.

I read The Mommy Dot with my two young boys. They enjoyed the simple story and the fun, bright illustrations. When I finished reading, my six-year-old turned to me, rubbing his forehead, and asked, “Wait, is the Mommy Dot real?” My three-year-old said, “I like that! That’s fun!” Then he thought about what color dots he and his brother might have.

My boys and I could relate to this story that J.M. Dazzles created. They, too, hate going to bed and staying in bed while Mom and Dad are still awake. We’ve recently been talking a lot about how important it is to tell the truth, as well. Telling a lie might make things easier at that moment, but lies always make things worse in the end. The Mommy Dot was a cute and fun way for me to reinforce telling the truth at home. I think it is a story that will stick with my children, too, as they work on honesty with family members, at school, and with friends. The Mommy Dot is a great children’s book with a great message!
