Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept is a beautifully illustrated picture book that sensitively broaches the subject of keeping our children safe from inappropriate touch. We teach water safety and road safety but how do we teach 'body safety' to young children in a way that is neither frightening nor confronting? This book is an invaluable tool for parents, caregivers, teachers and health professionals. The comprehensive notes to the reader and discussion questions at the back of the book support both the reader and the child when discussing the story. Suitable for ages 3 to 12 years. A free 'body safety' song, supporting teacher's pack and other useful resources are also available from: www.somesecrets.info

As a mother I feel it is important to teach our children about the dangers society place on us nowadays.
"Some secrets should never be kept" explores the topic of inappropriate contact,being made to feel uncomfortable about it and keeping secrets.
If read frequently, I believe it would embed a child with the not only the knowledge to recognise when something is wrong or your being made to feel uneasy but also the courage to tell an adult and seek help whilst reassuring the child that they are loved no matter what.
