Yes. I know these are Children's books. Yes. I know I am nearly 62 years old! And YES! I thoroughly enjoyed these books! I had never read any of them before but had seen the movies of the Little Princess and The Secret Garden. Actually when I was reading the Little Princess, I could almost hear Shirley Temple saying some of the lines! The ending of the Little Princess was not at all like the ending to the movie. No surprise there! Both books were, of course, better than the movies. I have heard ...more

I read Little Lord Fauntleory, and it was perfect! It captures the beauty of childhood and the innocence of children. I loved the wording, the character, and how it inspired me to become a better mother.

My sister just finished reading Secret Garden to her 5-year-old today. They read for 3 hours straight! They loved it, and I look forward to reading all of these books aloud to my children.

This book was written by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The purpose for him to write this is for little kids to waant to seek adventure, and have fun outdoors. The lesson i learned by reading this book is to go outside, have fun and meet new friends.
The styles of the book are monologue and dialogue. The author put in a lot of descriptions and a lot of talking to one another. There is also a lot of narration in this book where the narrator tells you exactly what is happening. Then the dialogue comes

I loved The Little Princess and The Secret Garden when I was a young girl. I never read Little Lord Fauntleroy until I was an adult, but I enjoyed that book as well.

I liked reading about Sarah Crewe's remarkably mature attitude as she went from riches to rags and back again. She never mistreated others when she was rich, but she also didn't have as much of an opportunity to show true compassion for others until her riches were taken away. Then you see her true grit and watch as her character de

I almost can't list my favourite books from when I was little, but this collection of three stories would be among them. I've always loved A Little Princess the best, but the other two are not far behind.
I said it before in my Secret Garden review, but they are all three of them charming and pretty, and have (if you care about that sort of thing) a good moral embedded in them.

All delightful and moving. A Little Princess will always be my favorite that Burnett has written. I read this last year with my girls and by the time we were finished it had captured the whole family. We all were brought to tears and one point..(including Kameron). :) Sarah Crewe became a hero in our home and someone to discuss emulating.

Modern fairy tales

Having already read Fauntleroy, this comment applies only to The Hidden Garden and The Little Princess. These stories are essentially modern fairy tales: short and sweet and pleasant to read, but artificial characters and scenes.

bahwa dalam hidup jangan sampai menyerah, jangan berputus asa. Roda kehidupan berputar wajar, maka tak perlu menghiasi hidup dengan kesombongan. Suka buku-bukunya Mr. Burnett yg luar biasa.
