Olive and the Big Secret by Tor Freeman (Templar Books, 2012) tells of one girl’s challenge to keep a secret her best friend told her! I’m sure many kids can relate to knowing a tantalizing secret that just dares to be told. The mixed media illustrations of a group of animals friends give it a universal feel. The animal-kids and the story alike are adorable. My 5-year-old son loved telling the kids to “stop telling the secret” as we read.

Note: I read this book from a library copy for consideration for the Cybils award. I was not compensated in any way for my opinions.
