Every night before bed, Maggie and her mother sit down and read a story. And every night, Maggie asks the same question, "Is that true?" Discover, along with Maggie, that some stories may not be true on the outside but are true on the inside.

As Maggie listens to a story about a little girl who grew up on the prairies, about a ruler who cut a knot in two, about a shepherd who went looking for a lost sheep, about a king who made a foolish wish, and finally, about a giant who lived in a beautiful garden, she discovers that some stories are true because they actually happened. Other stories are true because they tell us something true about a real person, place, or event, even if what they describe did not happen. And some stories are true - even if they are completely made up - because they tell us something true about our own experiences.
