Secret, Secret by Daisy Law

Secret, secret. Keep or tell? Stay hush-hush or shout and yell? There are lots of different types of secrets. There are big secrets, small secrets, ones you'd never tell, ones you want to tell, ones you keep locked up, or hidden under your bed. There are ones that make you smile, and others that make you scared. This charming picture book subtly explores the different types of secrets children may have, and encourages them to feel confident to share their secrets. It will be perfect for any child aged 3-7 who has trouble opening up and provides a great opportunity for discussing the things we should and shouldn't keep secret. The book also includes a section at the end for adults on how to respond to disclosures.


All children need to develop emotional intelligence: this book is a very helpful tool to use to this end

what's a good secret

and what's definitely not to be kept a secret. A nice balance is kept throughout the book, the colourful images are attractive, and it conveys a gentle message to children while supporting adults with the explanatory notes at the end. I would definitely recommend this book. -- Rosaleen McElvaney, Clinical Psychologist and author of Helping Children to Tell About Sexual Abuse
