Requesting Title: Bobby and Mandee's Don't Hide Abuse
Author: Kahn, Robert
Published: 2011
Summary:
In this moral-driven tale, Bobby explains to Mandee that some secrets should not be kept—especially those that threaten a friend's safety. Bobby explains to Mandee the concept of "abuse" and then tells a very sad story—of a boy who did not tell a trusted adult about his friend's abuse and what happened as a result. Mandee replies with a story of her own, about her friend at school. Together, Bobby and Mandee decide to go to Dad and ask for his advice on how to help Mandee's friend. Author and former Deputy Sheriff Robert Kahn recommends that parents read this book with their children and encourage teachers to share it with the class!
