Children’s Lit Reading Responses – #1- The Secret Garden


From May 14th:
This week, I read The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett in the ebook version that was available through iTunes. I read the entire book on my phone, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had read Hodgeson Burnett previously and found that having an angelic young boy be the catalyst of change for one or more curmudgeons was seemed to be a theme in her writing.
