Settling down behind an old oak tree for a secret game on his game player, a boy is startled when the tree strikes up a conversation. The wise tree helps him learn that even if he doesn't speak a lie, sneaking and hiding something you know is wrong is still dishonest. By reflecting on a time when the tree saw the boy's father in a similar situation, the boy discovers "Oh no! I have a conscience."
With some gentle but honest guidance, the tree helps the boy realize that the best reason to be truthful is because you can feel good in your heart when you are proud of your choices. In the end, the boy grows from his mistake and his self-confidence soars as he chooses a path he can be proud of.
"A conscience is that voice in your head, and feeling in your heart, that tells you if something is right or wrong, even when no one is watching."
