Billy Be Kind is a mouse living with a family of two young boys. Billy looks after the boys, cleans up after them, and makes them the treats they crave. When their mother comes home and praises them for cleaning up and keeping the house neat, they lie and accept the praise. Billy tells them they should not lie and must tell their mother the truth. When the boys cannot nap because they are thinking about the lie, they tell their mother the truth and feel the relief of owning up to their mistakes.
