Millie has a secret, and she’s such a tease. No, this isn’t a Victoria’s Secret knock-off. This is a book from my childhood that my toddler stole from my bookshelf. I’ll forgive her for not asking first as she’s still learning the language.
Throughout the book, all of Millie’s friends continually ask her what her secret is and when she’ll tell it.
Seriously? That’s just wrong, Millie.
For DAYS, Millie does this. When I was a kid, we would have just thought Millie was full of it and wondered why we were friends with her. Was she not getting enough attention at home?
Finally! At last, we find out what Millie’s big secret is on the last page, and we come to understand why she waited so long to tell it. Although, she could have given us some hints.
I LOVED this book as a kid. I wanted Millie’s backyard. I still want Millie’s backyard.
My toddler is always handing me this book to read to her. The pictures are vibrant and beautiful, and the story is cute and engaging.
I love Fujikawa’s books and am starting a library of them for my toddler, so she doesn’t wear out my books. Fujikawa’s books are being reprinted a few at a time every year – check them out on Amazon. This particular book, however, has not been reprinted yet. Still waiting.
