Picturebook Review: Olive and the Big Secret by Tor Freeman

Olive and the Big Secret by Tor Freeman is a picturebook about keeping promises and secrets. Molly shares a secret with her friend Olive. Poor Olive wants to keep the secret, but finds it hard to stay quiet. When she gives into the temptation of sharing she quickly discovers that she is not the only one with trouble staying quiet. Before long Molly knows her secret is out, and knows where the trail begins.

Olive and the Big Secret is a cute story about how hard it can be to keep secrets. The illustrations of the young animals are crisp and fun, depicting the emotions of the characters well. The story is fun, and can start great discussions about secrets and promises in a home or school setting. It would play well as being read in a group setting, one on one, or with emerging readers.
