A reader from Massachusetts sent in this review of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
My 8 year old daughter Rowan read The Secret Garden and LOVED it. It was the first book that she really enjoyed and couldn’t put down. She was an avid reader, but this was the first book with enough depth to pull her into the story. Each day she would tell me which part she was on and we would discuss it. Finally she finished the book and we celebrated by watching the film adaptation. Rowan enjoyed seeing how the director changed the book a bit and liked imagining how she might have portrayed the characters herself.
We came to this website looking for some books we could read together for the summer. Thank you for the website! — Rebecca G., Eldersburg, Maryland
