It was summer vacation and the Angelino family decided to take a vacation with some family and friends. They went to the campground at the local state park and they played backyard games like badminton, horseshoes, and hide-and-go-seek. The Angelinos had a lot of fun swimming, fishing, going on nature walks, and having movie nights at the Amphitheater. One day the three Angelino boys took a nature trail with their dad. The three boys walked ahead of their dad and they were soon out of sight. The boys saw a lot of animals, swung on a vine hanging from a tree, and picked up some fallen apples from the apple trees on their way back home. They all had dinner and the children went to bed. Then suddenly there was a crash. What was the loud bang that scared the adults?

A Trail of Honesty by J.A. Angelo is an adorable story that conveys a good message to young readers; that of being honest, explaining how actions have consequences, and being responsible. The illustrations are delightful and they bring the story alive and make the concept clear to readers. The parent/child discussion at the end of the book is fun, interactive, and educational, and is perfect to use in classrooms during interactive sessions to help children understand the importance of being honest. It is a perfect storybook for parents to have in their personal collection to make children understand the importance of their actions and how to be honest with parents.
