keep it Like a Secret Book By Sandol Stoddard

Keep It Like A Secret (1962)—In many respects a companion piece to The Thinking Book, Keep It Like A Secret also toured a young child’s imagination—“the secret things worth knowing and sharing and keeping,” as Atlantic Press blurbed. More poetry than prose, the book celebrates the wonder of young life. Years later, when asked if the voices in these pages were of her young children, she smiled mischievously and said, “Actually, that was ME as a young child.”
