Meghan Rose is a first grader who learns first hand the power of words – both good and bad. This scripture based lesson is a wonderful lighthearted story that illustrates for children how important it is not to use the power of your words to hurt.
The story doesn’t preach to its audience, instead it teaches us how important it is to treat others fairly, especially those we love.
At the end of this easy chapter book, the author has a variety of activities that could be used at home or in a religious education classroom. I loved the warmth and sincerity of “Meghan Rose Has a Secret”. The characters are engaging, the story compelling—even for an adult. This is a wonderful, non-traditional way to teach children to be kind to one another.
