Olive and the Big Secret by Tor Freeman is a fun little book about first crushes, friendship, and keeping secrets. After telling Olive her secret, Molly asks her not to share it with anyone else. Olive tries really, really hard to keep the secret, but she just has to tell someone. It’s okay, though, because when she tells her friend Joe, she asks him not to tell anyone else. This secret travels from friend to friend to friend. Some friends are shocked, some are eager to share, and some just aren’t interested in gossip. When the secret ends up being whispered into Molly’s ear, she can’t believe Olive told. This book is a great way to introduce the importance of keeping secrets between friends, as well as being a great conversation starter about first crushes. See this book listed in our catalog
