Product Description

A Timeless Children’s Classic

The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is one of the great classics of children’s literature, although now much more admired than when it was first published in 1910 as it is now. One of the central themes of the novel, that good health comes from healthy food, physical exercise, and a positive attitude towards life, is increasingly obvious to many of us, and has now, or is being, being confirmed by medical research. ‘Organic’ foods, ‘free-range’ chickens, and growing concern for our physical and community environments are becoming common wisdom now, and many diseases – as seemingly unrelated as childhood myopia and rickets (both associated with lack of time spent in the open air and sun) – have been found to be more closely-related to how gracefully we live than to "germs." What we do is sometimes as important as what happens to us, and ‘being brave’ in the face of adversity sometimes turns out to be a life-saver, just as it does in the book.

This edition includes the original four color plates and a color reproduction of the 1911 hardcover edition and is fully-linked to make navigation easy. Select any chapter title to link to the table of contents, which is functional, unlike many inexpensive e-books one sees. Although today’s Kindle doesn’t display color, many Kindle apps on other devices do, and who knows what the future holds for the Kindle itself?
