New Novel

I took out two novels from the library that had themes centering around gardens. I read the dust jacket summaries to the children and let them vote on which novel they would like to hear. The vote was unanimous for The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. So, that is the novel we are reading.

This was one of my FAVORITE books as a young child. It's magical, mysterious and intriguing. I hope they love it. What a great memory!

HA I just came to make the same comment Fran made. One of my favorites! I love that story so much and I keep looking for the old version of the movie that I loved so I can show it to my kids. It was magical.

Oh my goodness it was my favorite as well. I read this book to my class in October, children really enjoyed it. They would ask, " are we going to read The Secret Garden today?"
