The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett


In this sleepy time reading of The Secret Garden we pick up with Dickon and Mary in the garden, deciding whether poor Colin will be helped by some fresh air and sunshine. They decide to try persuade him to come out with them, but events take a turn when she’s too busy to visit Colin and the two of them have a fight.

Events get tense in a funny way and play out for the best. But you should be asleep before Colin’s late-night temper tantrum puts their friendship at risk
