I found this book in my grandmother's basement when I was a kid, and read it repeatedly throughout my childhood. Recently I started reading aloud to a group of 10-12 year old kids living in a local children's home; this was the first book I chose. We're almost through it, and they seem to have really enjoyed it. Although there are things that I need to explain because of the differences in societies & language, the story is still relevant to children today....definitely on my all-time classic list!

My 12 y.o. granddaughter has read this book and it is her favorite of all time. We have a garden with a pergola...she wants to paint "Secret Garden" on the top beam. I've homeschooled her for 3 years and taught her about nature, but this book has really made a nature lover of her.
There is also a DVD which I recommend both the book and DVD from Amazon. Granny

First, The Secret Garden was read to me; later, I read it to myself. I still reread it every few years. I own both paperback and hardcover. I learned a lot about gardening from this book, although I didn't realize it until much later. For instance, the belief in spring, Magic, health, seeds and perennials and that they are somehow related!

All I can say is grab a copy at a yard sale or library and start reading.

This is on of my favorite books! I have read it over and over and I didn't even read it the first time until I was in my twenties. I love it that they actually talk about the gardening in it, too. Makes you want to go out and dig your own "bit of earth".
