Title: "The Secret Garden" and the way children's literature can shape our hearts and minds.
Content: "The Secret Garden" and the way children's literature can shape our hearts and minds. When I reach a low point I find concentrating extremely hard, so the kind of reading I normally do is beyond me. I recently bought Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning, finally accepting that the promised copy from a former friend was never coming my way, and the book sits reproachfully in the to-be-read pile, glaring at me. I have a mountain of books, both real and digital waiting to be read, and in some cases reviewed, and yet, I can't read. I've downloaded a number of classics to my Kindle recently, books I have loved in the past and wish to have digital copies of for when I am travelling. The other night, flicking through the list of books I know I need to read, I found myself opening children's classic "The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnet and read almost halfway in a short time. I read it first when I was about 8 or 9, and many times later. I read it to my daughter when she was little. It sounds a total cliché but it was like meeting an old friend I've not seen for years. For those of you who have not read it, the book tells the tale of Mary Lennox, orphaned when a cholera epidemic kills her parents in India and she is shipped home to live in the home of her reclusive uncle on the edge of the North York moors. Mary is an angry, independent and unhappy child, used to being waited on by native servants and getting her own way in everything, and arriving in the cold, blunt North of England is a massive culture shock. Turned out to "play" outside in the extensive gardens Mary slowly comes alive and is enthralled by the idea of one of the walled gardens being shut up and locked for ten years. The huge manor house is full of secrets and mysteries, and Mary sets out to solve several of them, most importantly to find her way into the "secret" garden her uncle had locked when his beloved wife died. The lonely, somewhat unattractive child finds herself fascinated by the idea of growing things, as the spring starts working its magic on the land and she asks her uncle whether she may have a "bit of earth": ""Might I," quavered Mary, "might I have a bit of earth?" In her eagerness she did not realise how queer the words would sound and that they were not the ones she had meant to say. Mr Craven looked quite startled. "Earth!" he repeated. "What do you mean?" "To plant seeds in- to make things grow- to see them come alive," Mary faltered." I think this book may be responsible for my love of gardens and of nature and of that feeling of nature holding wonderful mysteries, a kind of magic. Rereading the story woke me up to something, the power of words. The whole book is written in lovely evocative lyrical language, such that both a child of nine can relish and an adult too. It inspired me to ask my father for my own patch of garden and to learn as much as I could about the natural world. I spend my pocket money on books of trees and flowers and wild animals, and I went shopping with my father to choose seeds each year, to plant in our walled garden. I spoke to robins (I still do), and would spend hours sitting watching the hares boxing in the spring. I still crave a truly secret garden of my own. One where I am not overlooked by others, and where I can tend the earth in my own way, without reference to what others think a garden should look like. Honeysuckle trailing up trees, roses filling the air with sweetness, daisies starry-white in shaggy grass, all slightly dishevelled and un-manicured but rioting with colour and vibrant life. Where bird and animals can come and feel safe and at ease with humans. I guess I want my own Eden.

Title: The Secret Garden
Content: The Secret Garden is an old classic. It is a great and interesting book but some of it can be a bit tricky to read especially when people with a Yorkshire accent such as Martha are speaking. I was interested in this book at first when I saw it was free on my kindle! The name also rang a bell in my head. I recommend this book to anyone 9+ or just get an adult to read it to you! There is also a movie you can get of this book which I have watched thoroughly and loved. My favourite character is by far Martha because she is jolly and always has something to say! I was always fond of Mary and Colin too even know they are very stubborn. I also liked the way Dickon looks after animals, wildlife and his family. Overall a very good book!

Title: Great read
Content: Great story, waited along time to buy this one. I only have one problem, the package was yet again torn and the covers of the book bowed. Think all books should be vacuumed wrapped to keep them in prime condition

Title: Stunning version of a much loved story
Content: I bought this for my seven year old and she absolutely loved it. For anyone who doesn't know the story itself it is quite old-fashioned and slow-paced, but there is wonderful description of both house and garden and also interesting character development. (In brief, a lonely little girl called Mary is sent to a huge house in Yorkshire after her parents die. She is miserable and sour, but eventually comes to meet a variety of people who teach her more about life and help her to develop into a much nicer person. She also finds she has a cousin, Colin, who is an invalid, and they develop a bond which changes them both as they spend time in the garden of the title.) What really makes this version come alive is the pictures - they really are just beautiful. Detailed and intricate, colourful yet not too loud, they show the garden coming slowly to life and the animals the local boy Dickon introduces the others to. It really conjures up the beauty of Spring and a garden in a way no other book has managed! In general I'd recommend reading this with a child of probably 7-11 in age. A more able reader could manage it alone in terms of the actual mechanics of reading, but there are a lot of old-fashioned ideas, values and vocabulary which would need explaining for full understanding or appreciation. Beautiful but slow moving, this book won't be for everyone as a great many modern children prefer something a little faster-paced and light-hearted - but I loved it as a child and was pleased to see how much my daughter enjoyed it too.
