Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.



This book is for my India Marie and dedicated to all children who are victims of abuse, neglect and uncertainty.

Know Tiny Secrets: How To Keep Your Body Private and Safe by Latasha Fleming with illustrations by Colleen Madden.

Latasha Fleming believes that if children "Know" the secrets of abuse, there will be "No" secrets. Her book provides a safe, age-appropriate way to teach children awareness of sexual abuse at a young age. It is designed for parents to read with their 4 - 9 year olds.

Know Tiny Secrets is very well done and is available in paperback or Kindle. Learn more at


  1. Wow, am always impressed how authors can make great children's books tackling difficult issues!

  2. Sounds like a powerful kids book!

  3. This sounds like a good one. I cannot imagine writing for children, but when it comes to these issues, I'm glad that there are those who can. Good pick.

  4. Hi Gilion,

    I guess this is one book which parents are either going to be in total agreement with, or are going to dislike intensely.

    I can remember many years ago, the controversy there was surrounding a book 'The Body Book' written by an English ex nurse, turned broadcaster and 'agony aunt', Claire Rayner and aimed at roughly the same age group as your own pick this week..

    I have always wondered if children didn't have to learn too much too soon about such things. However, given the state of the increasingly perverted world in which we seem to be living, I have rather revised my thinking and we should give our young people every opportunity to remain safe and happy during their childhood!

    Thanks for sharing and hosting:)


  5. It's a difficult issue to tackle - I'm pleased to see that this is well done.

  6. Indeed a difficult issue. Good that someone is able to do it in a good way. I find it really sad that people can abuse children.

  7. This one sounds like it would be tough. I honestly don't know if I could do it. I hope you enjoy it.
    Have a great week.

  8. This sounds like it would be a tough read though an important one. I've done the standard discussions but a more thorough explanation like this book would provide is probably worth looking for despite the fact it's not something I want to think about.

  9. Sounds like a very good, timely children's book. Sometimes the simplest books convey the biggest messages.
