Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept

By Jayneen Sanders

“Forewarned is forearmed”

Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept is a beautifully illustrated picture book that sensitively broaches the subject of keeping our children safe from sexual interference. This book has been written and illustrated in a way that is neither frightening nor confronting and is an invaluable tool for parents. Forewarned is forearmed! This book is all about prevention.


Through story we can talk about difficult topics and this book does it exceptionally well. The key message is that there is nothing so terrible you can’t tell someone you trust.The discussion questions at the back of the book are an excellent support guide when talking with a child about the story.


This book can be read to children from the ages of 3 to 12 years.
