Be Real, Macy Weaver

We rated this book:


Macy Weaver has never had a best friend for very long. Whenever she gets one, they dump her within a couple of months. Macy doesn’t understand why; maybe she is too pushy, or maybe her laugh is weird? Macy doesn’t realize that lying to get friends is not a good way to build relationships. Thinking about all the friendships she has lost, Macy is excited for a move and a chance at a fresh start in Maryland. Everything is going well and she meets a new possible best friend, but then Macy reverts to her old ways. It seems like some people never learn. Buy the book to see what happens to Macy and her new friend.

Be Real, Macy Weaver is a story that teaches a lesson. It is a good story to be read to small children in sections as a bedtime story or to be read by more advanced readers, ages six to nine. It illustrates what happens when you don’t tell the truth and gives more perspective on how friendships can form and last. While this story was not designed for pre-teens such as myself, I believe that it would be enjoyed by my little seven-year-old sister and four-year-old cousin. Try Be Real, Macy Weaver with your little one at bedtime and I am sure they will enjoy it.
