Book review: The Society of Season Secretkeepers

The Society of Seasonal Secretkeepers  a gift set that helps children come to terms with the the “true existence” of The Tooth Fairy, The Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. With the right perspective, this truth can be a moment to cherish.

Often when children find out, they become upset or distrusting and often spoil this truth to younger children. The Society of Seasonal Secretkeepers was created to help children come to terms and shine a new light on this by becoming a part of a secret society.

The set includes a token, as an induction into the secret society, and field guide that’s full of encouragement, fun ideas, creative prompts. It’ll also helps kids understand the responsibility of guarding The Truth for younger kids. The guide is broken into 4 sections. First, new "Agents" are inducted into the Secret Society. Then, they explore their own family traditions and beliefs in the Book of Ancient Secrets. Agents then go through Agent Training, a series of fun, upbeat activities before finally completing five secret missions. 

The gift set retails for $27.99 and available on its site to purchase. 

My Thoughts

Both of my children are older. I have a daughter who is almost 9, and she's been my one to question Santa the most. Then I have an 11 year old son. He's a go with whatever you tell him sort of kid. I recently told him the truth about Santa, The Easter Bunny, and Tooth Fairy. I figured since he was in middle school, it was time to know the truth.

I enlisted him with this book when it came and reminded him that he wasn't to tell his sister anything. Even though s he questions it, she does still believe. He was happy to get this because to him, it was all his, something he didn't have to share, and he held a secret.

He read this fairly quickly and enjoyed the activities that came with it. I think some of it might be geared toward someone a little younger than him with the activities, but he still had a good time, and really enjoyed the book and learning new things about the traditions of Santa, Tooth Fairy, and Easter Bunny.
