The Secret Garden (Paperback)    

  • The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is a great classic book, and can be considered among the best in children's literature. Mary Lennox, an unattractive orphan girl, is sent to live at her uncle's manor on the Yorkshire moors of England. There, she discovers a secret garden that has been locked up for years. Along with Colin, her spoiled and sickly cousin, and Dickon, a country boy who loves nature and can talk to animals, Mary is drawn to the wonderful world of the secret garden. They work to rejuvenate the secret garden and, along the way, Mary and Colin find their lives are transformed for the better. With strong and memorable characters and a heartwarming story, The Secret Garden is a good book for children in 4th grade through 7th grade.
