Let’s Talk About It! – Do You Have a Secret?


SKU: 9780764131707 Categories: , ,

Every child has secrets, and many secrets are fun to keep—for instance, a surprise birthday gift for Mom, or a secret handshake with a young friend. But sometimes, children have secrets that make them feel bad, and these secrets are best shared with their parents, or with some trusted older person. A child who is bullied might be inclined to keep it secret, but it’s always best to tell parents about it. Or children who are touched intimately and improperly by an older person will soon feel better if they reveal the secret to parents.

This book helps kids distinguish between good and bad secrets. Even very young children have concerns and anxieties, and this book is written and illustrated especially for them. Parents are advised to read this book aloud while their pre-schooler listens and looks at illustrations of the boys and girls in each story. Many children in early grades will be able to read the stories for themselves. Do you have a secret encourage children to explore their feelings, and then to speak openly about things that trouble them.
