*WARNING: I will be discussing the stories in depth. I will try not to completely spoil the stories, but I want to give anyone who is looking at buying this for their children an idea of what is talked about so they know what age they might want to introduce some of the ideas to t
An overthrown baseball changes the life of three children when they meet Josh and Melva. Using stories from The Book Of Secrets, the children learn how to deal with the problems in their lives.

I thought this was a delightful book that showed how sometimes you need to step back and look at your problems from a different angle, and then you might be able to see a solution. Max Lucado has done it again, definitely read this book.

*Taken from my book reviews blog:
Max Lucado has created a beautiful book that illustrates how to grow faith and spirituality. He openly shares the love of our Heavenly Father and Christ through a well told story that narrates four friends through everyday challenges. Designed to be read to and by children this book is also an important reminder to adults as well, since the secrets are timeless. The illustrations add to the beauty of the book and I highly recommend it for everyone.

My dad used to read one chapter (one secret) of this book to my brothers and me every night before bed when we were children. Even at a young age, I remember the secrets in this book deeply affecting me. I buy this book each time a friend has a baby and I have my own copy waiting to be read to my own children. I highly recommend it.
now here's a lucado book i can really get behind. did you know i had to scroll through four or five pages of his books before i found this one? anyways, i wish lucado wrote more fiction - that's where he could have made his biggest impact (in my opinion).
This is a great book with lots of treasures inside, not just for the children in the story, who learn so much, but for readers from the outside as well. It's one I'll read again and again and share with my children.
This is a lovely book with valuable truths, a great family book. It deals with many of the temptations and puzzles that face all believers, and tells its stories in an interesting, relateable manner.

It was wonderful. Meant to be a book for children to read every night, a teenage girl learned amazing things from it. Max Lucado was moving as always and accompanied by beauty from Ron DiCianni.
Potential, but overall, I think these stories are a bit trite/cheesy. (Esp the illustrations). I like "the point" of the stories, but they feel like "stories-with-a-point" ....
I love this book and read it periodically to refresh my memory. It's about a group of kids who learn a whole lot from an old man!

This will always remind me of my childhood, when dad would read from this every night. It's a great book.
What a beautiful story! Can be read as the entire book or each chapter can be a story.
