Hello readers of my daughter's blog! I am Fairday's mother, Pru. When she and Lizzy told me that the theme this week was going to be gardens, I just had to be a part of it. I asked her if I could review one of my very favorite stories and she agreed. So, here is my review of the wonderful book The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. ~ Pru Morrow
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is a very special book for me. My mother read me this story when I was just about Fairday's age and it has never left my heart. Watching as Mary transforms from an unhappy, sour child into a rosy-cheeked, young girl full of hopes and dreams fills me with tears every time I read the story. I would recommend this book to readers ages 8 and up. I think you will enjoy following along with Mary as her world is changed forever by the magic and mystery of a lady's secret and her beautiful, hidden garden.
Has anyone else read The Secret Garden or any other books by Frances Hodgson Burnett?
Happy reading! ~ P
