Mary Lennox is sent to Misselthwaite Manor in Yorkshire England after her parents die from Cholera. Also living in the manor house is her sickly cousin Colin, who is every bit as spoiled as she. Mary and Colin are like two peas in a pod, closed up in a gloomy old manor on the Yorkshire moors, until a secret garden captures their imaginations. As spring brings new life to the Earth, Mary and Colin's sour natures begin to change. Playing and working every day in the secret garden improves their nature and health, as the magic of the garden transforms them into normal, healthy children. Download and start listening now!

    " When I read the secret garden I was in 4th grade but I remember how beautiful it had been written. I loved the curiosity of the little girl and magic of the garden. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlyn | 2/2/2014

    " This book has caused me to want to comb back through other childhood favorites to reread as an adult. I enjoyed rereading this book so much that I grieved a bit when it ended. I didn't remember how deep the emotions were in the story or how heart-warming the plot was. I highly recommend that others who loved this story as a child revisit it as an adult. You won't be disappointed. "

    " this book is so adorable. I always try to imagine how the secret garden looks like. Burnett is so clever in describing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa Raetz | 1/18/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. I looked forward to reading it in the evenings, just as I would look forward to visiting a friend. The one thing that I found disappointing is that the story is focused on the little girl, Mary, through most of the story but then leaves her flat and focuses on Colin, the son of the secret garden's owner. Why not just integrate him into the story and not abandon Mary? Still, this is a classic for a reason. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matthew Metzdorf | 1/9/2014

    " This book was okay, and I remember the movie being pretty good, but every time I got into it a character would take another shot at "blacks" as "not people" and I just couldn't take it anymore. I get it's just the characters, but it was proclaimed with such haughtiness that it just seemed a big old joke and constantly conjured an image of a bunch of turn-of-the-century british folk chortling over their tea. It just irked me too much to continue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monique Gionet | 1/2/2014

    " Re-reading this book as an adult was amazing. I liked the book well-enough as a child but I really 'felt' it as an adult. I think it came back to me at exactly the right time, when I needed it. Was the perfect little story that I needed in my life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin Boyington | 12/31/2013

    " I know why so many people love this book, and when I was a kid I did, too. But I went back to it a few years ago and was shocked by the saccharine New-Agey preachiness of The Moral. Terrible ideas get reincarnated all the time, and the ones in this book came back as "The Secret". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelya (The Oaken Bookcase) | 12/30/2013

    " My first re-read since I was small. The descriptive writing in this story is just gorgeous, but the pace is very slow and gets a bit lecture-esque at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittney | 12/30/2013

    " Certainly a classic. Really liked the book, far more than the movie. It helps if you have some back ground knowledge in Christian Science and that whole religious movement "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gwen | 12/17/2013

    " Still a very enjoyable book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josieg | 12/12/2013

    " This book is a classic! One of my childhood favourites and so was the film "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gleanne Marie | 12/10/2013

    " Charming! What young girl hasn't read this book and been swept away? Sweet days gone by. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rianna L | 12/9/2013

    " Read this in first grade. I only remember that because my mom tells the story of how impressed my teacher was that I brought that book in on my first day of school. I should reread it. I don't remember too much about it. lol "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aj Holzer | 12/1/2013

    " I had to read this in my 5th grade class. I thought it was going to be girly because of title but it turned out to be good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scartowner | 6/28/2013

    " Hundreds of editions published. A lovely story of abandonment and acceptance, guilt and redemption, and the healing power of nature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deniece | 6/27/2013

    " This was a cute book. Sad to say I have only just now read it. I surely thought it may have been read to me as a child but I didnt remember anything that was in the book. Oh well I'm glad I had the experience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Rogers todd | 10/2/2012

    " My first chapter book ever:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camryn | 6/5/2012

    " This is my favorite book of all time! I have read it a dozen times! I love the story line, it is creative and shows that kids just need to be kids. For me, this book depicted the need to be independent and caring. I would recommend this book for anyone and everyone, it is amazing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marjorie | 4/16/2012

    " Read as a kid (one of the first books I "read" with my Mom's help! Read again as an adult and watched the movie. Ni love this story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Joyce | 3/31/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy Spiller | 3/27/2012

    " A wonderful book. I wish I would have read it as a child. So glad I read it in the spring and not in the dead of winter...I have the gardening bug now! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 1/23/2012

    " Sylvie and I had a great time reading this one. And here I thought it was just for girls. We started the movie tonight after finishing this one. I don't recommend the 1975 version, which is streaming on netflix. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A | 12/24/2011

    " More of a children's book than I expected, but it got better every page. This book makes you feel more alive the more you read. Definitely belongs in a home library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 5/19/2011

    " I cannot count how many copies of this book I have bought. It is the perfect gift for a ten year old having a birthday. It brings back wonderful memories of a teacher reading to the class. Thank you Mrs. Jackson. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 fifi boo | 5/16/2011

    " One of those old books that when you start... you have to finish. What I recommend is: Watch the movie. Seriously. It might be different but it still gives the main point(s). Bleh... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micah | 5/16/2011

    " It was as beautiful as I remember. A perfect read-aloud: we got to that magical point when no one, not even Mom who has a million things to do, wants to put it down. "

    " All ills will be overcome by fresh air , hard work, and hot potatoes, with perhaps a bit of skipping. Orphaned? Unloved? Stop whining, get to work and you will be happy. We could use more of this attitude today! "
