In Tennyson’s Big Secret, A. H. Benjamin has children guessing what the secret might be. After exploring the many possibilities, the author makes the big reveal. What can it possibly be? As you read this book with your child, give them time to guess what the secret is. It has to be bigger than pulling a rabbit out of the hat. Maybe Tennyson can pull an elephant out of his magician’s hat. Maybe Tennyson is a world-famous artist. Perhaps Tennyson is the best footballer to have ever lived. The possibilities are numerous. Encourage your child to use their imagination when they guess. Is it conceivable that your child has the same big secret as Tennyson? At the end of the book, have your child join in the secret and share it with you.
A. H. Benjamin shares the most important secret one can have in Tennyson’s Big Secret. It is a secret that everyone can be a part of and should share regularly. As you enjoy this book with your child, encourage them. Help your child look beyond the boundaries and visualize the endless possibilities. Which of their creative ideas would constitute a great secret? What would make them special? Peter Trimarco contributes his artwork to illustrate the various options as to what the secret might be. As you encourage your child to imagine, help them to learn what is logical and what is impossible. Logic is sorely missing in today’s society, but this book gives you a great platform to teach your children how to think both imaginatively and logically. Your children will love the words and illustrations while you will love the time spent interacting with your children.
