Book Description

March 1 2005 Classic Starts™ Series
Following Sterling's spectacularly successful launch of its children's classic novels (240,000 books in print to date),comes a dazzling new series: Classic Starts. The stories are abridged; the quality is complete. Classic Starts treats the world's beloved tales (and children) with the respect they deserve--all at an incomparable price.

The discovery of a neglected garden transforms the life of a sullen and unloved little girl-and everyone around her, too. When the newly orphaned Mary Lennox leaves her native India and arrives at her uncle's mansion in Yorkshire, everything seems strange to her. Then Mary hears of a mysterious garden where no one has set foot in 10 years. With the help of some new friends, she plans to uncover its secrets...and make it blossom once again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Starts: The Secret Garden April 20 2011
By Ashleyct6 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a very nice, easy-text first reader for a classic story, but there are almost no pictures. I was hoping for a Great Illustrated Classics type of presentation. Otherwise very pretty binding and cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected! Jan. 31 2011
By Camille M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was hesitant to order an abridged version of a classic, but so glad I did! I am reading this to preschoolers and wanted to make it easier to understand and more enjoyable and this book does both very well. The story moves quickly enough that they are not getting bored, and while there are still certainly many words they don't run across everyday (which is the idea of reading this book - to expose them to all sorts of these new words), there are not so many that the story becomes difficult to follow. The language is also a bit more modernized than the original British tale. A great way to introduce little ones to classic tales!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It! Nov. 18 2010
By Monica Arabie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love all the "Classic Starts" books! I read these to my four-year-old, and any time we have nothing to do, she actually suggests we read another chapter in our book! I hope that, with the Classic Starts, she will never be afraid to pick up a book because it's too long, or too verbose. These will instill a love for the basic story lines of classic novels so that, when she's older, she can fearlessly delve much deeper into the originals.
My four-year-old sits quietly and listens, while my two-year-old daughter plays with our one-year-old. I had assumed that she wasn't listening, but the other day I asked a question about the story line, and the 2 y.o. actually answered the question correctly! So start reading these even before you think they're paying attention! They're absorbing more than you'll ever know!

5.0 out of 5 stars The book is awesome! Sept. 18 2013
By AbiK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The book is awesome because all Mary wonders about is the secret garden. She wants to make every plant come back to life, but she needs help. She meets a boy named Dickon and he helps her make every plant come back to life.
