    One thought on “Do You Have a Secret?”

    1. I know this book is supposed to bring about more serious issues when children think they cannot tell anyone something that has been done to them, but I think this book would even be good for just the normal, everyday secret. Growing up, children can be cruel to each other and keep or spread secrets. This book deals with what secrets are good and which ones are bad. It teaches children how to deal with good and bad secrets and who to tell when they need help with a secret.

    2. I think this would be a good book for very young children – ages 2 to 5 maybe. It differentiates between a good secret in a bad secret. But ultimately I would also recommend the book God made all of me by Justin Holcomb. This book is much more general to just good and bad things that happen, which is amazing and wonderful to address. But if you're looking for something specifically that addresses child sexual abuse, look at God made all of me.
