When Mary Lennox's parents die from cholera in India, the spoiled orphan is transplanted to her uncle's 600-year-old gloomy and secretive estate in England. She is certain that she is destined for misery at Misselthwaite Manor. When Mary meets the old groundskeeper, he is the first to tell her what he thinks of her: We was wove out of th' same cloth. We're neither of us good lookin' an' we're both of us as sour as we look. We've got the same nasty tempers, both of us, I'll warrant.

However, she soon discovers an arched doorway into an overgrown garden, locked shut since the death of her aunt 10 years earlier. Fate grants Mary access to the secret garden and she begins transforming it into a thing of beauty, unaware that she too is changing. Download and start listening now!

    " This should be required reading, not just suggested reading. I've loved it and read it over more than once. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Costanza | 2/14/2014

    " This is a REALLY REALLY easy book that i read when i was still in primary school, but its really good for children who don't know much about the classics and I really enjoyed it! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 2/12/2014

    " I wish I'd read this when I was as a kid. (Although, if I had I may have been bizarrely convinced that fresh air and exercise could cure almost anything wrong with you....) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 2/8/2014

    " What a cute book! Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Miller | 2/6/2014

    " I like the way Mary changes in this book. The book has beautiful discriptions. At times it can be dull, but its worth sticking through it. Dickon is a wonderful and easy to love character. The movie has some differences, but it goes pretty close to the true story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chelsey | 2/5/2014

    " The Secret Garden is a very boring and drawn out book. It took me almost a month to read it. I never found the point to the story. It told a boring story about an angry little girl and a sickly little boy finding a garden. I did not like the book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlyn | 1/27/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lizzy | 1/24/2014

    " This book was beautiful and well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 1/20/2014

    " One of my all time favorite books - could have also been called how to change your life. This is another good one to re-read from time to time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 1/17/2014

    " This book is one of my favorite children's book. I want a secret garden too after reading this! "

    " My favorite book of all time! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacey | 12/18/2013

    " This book was also one of my favorite movies. I use to watch this movie and loved it when I was younger. This book is also a book that I would read to the upper grades to teach visualization or a book to read to end the day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audrey | 11/17/2013

    " Loved this book so much as a child, I must have taken it out of the library dozens of times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn | 10/6/2013

    " I loved this story. I have had a beautiful illustrated version for years and had never read it. It was our "classics book club" choice. I knew the basic story because I'd seen the movie and the play but the book was delightful. Very uplifting and inspiring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriela Kokalova | 9/13/2013

    " This is a very sweet children's book. A lovely light read. "

    " 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 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 12/15/2011

    " I thought it was very well adapted to a language more simple for children to understand. My boys loved the story without getting hung up on grammer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Weiling | 12/8/2011

    " I'm sure it's a great classic but I liked it better as a child. Now, I just get annoyed reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 cathbodua59 | 9/24/2011

    " The Secret Garden, The Little Princess and Little Women had this HUGE love effect of wanting to go back in time to The 1920s and live in that time. All three Stories remind me of what innocent fun there is in *Secret Hideouts*. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 8/20/2011

    " Another childhood favourite. I must have read this 20 or thirty times. We also had an audio recording (on cassette!) of Glenda Jackson, actress and ex-mayor of London, reading it, beautifully. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bette | 5/29/2011

    " Read it again and again. I would read it again now that I am an adult. I imagined that I was in the garden with Mary "

    " Hay, nh? nhàng, tuy c?u trúc truy?n không logic l?m và hoi nhàn nh?t, nhung bù l?i không khí thiên nhiên, d?ng quê trong truy?n thì tuy?t v?i. Ð?c xong ch? u?c có d?a b?n nhu Dickon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 5/20/2011

    " I read this to Paul and Lila, and we loved it. I don't think I've ever read it before. I didn't realize how much it is about the power of positive thinking. "

  • 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Synthia | 5/18/2011

    " I really like the book but if I were rating the musical (which is amazing!), I'd give it 5 stars. It's one of my top 3 musicals. "

  • 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. "
