"During a tumuluous divorce with my wife, I found this book at the libary. My older 11yr. old girl really enjoyed reading the book with me. Surprisingly, my 8yr. boy is glued to the book. He asks me to read it about once or twice a week. Sometimes I tear up when reading it and my son holds me close. The book is basic, general, but speaks from the heart. I have been able to use the simple story line as an example of how kids will continue to build a loving relationship with his mother, and how they will continue to build a loving relationship with me"

"I am a child therapist and I find this to be a very balanced look at secrets - identify the pros and cons of keeping them. It is very useful in therapy and is also appropriate for parents to use to initiate discussions on this topic. I find it appealing and understandable for children as young as 4 or as old as 8 or 9"
