Your child will love reading, or being read to, this picture book. It tells the story of Monty a frog who has a secret. He slowly shares his heartbreaking secret till the problem is resolved at the end. We all wait with bated breath after we share Monty's secret. The pictures add to the text and make for a wonderful combination.

"Psssst!" That's Monty the frog trying to get your attention. He's got a secret, and he can only tell it to YOU: he's afraid of water! So far, he's managed to avoid getting wet (even if it did involve using an umbrella), but someday he'll have to swim. It's a tough secret for a little frog. Should he tell his parents? If he does, you'll need to give him LOTS of encouragement. Cartoony and interactive, Can I Tell You a Secret? offers "chuckles, charm, and a handy-dandy life lesson" (Booklist).
