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.

It teaches children how to deal with good and bad secrets and who to tell when they need help with a secret.

An important book. I don't currently have kids but I do have nieces and nephews and someday hope to have my own and I think books like this are extremely important to know about and share.

Book that gives examples about good and bad secret and Lakers the children talk about sexual abuse and make them to talk about it if happened

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.
