Children's classics never age...:)

'The Secret Garden' and 'A Little Princess' were among my favourites when I was a kid. I read them so many times I can't even remember not knowing them...But I've only known them in translation - in my native Polish. So it was real pleasure to finally get to know them in their original - and with such a fantastic narrator as Ms Gregory:)

Both stories send a wonderful, positive message to kids - life is full of magic, you'll find it everywhere, you just have to open up and listen, to the nature and to yourself. And no, it's not the elf, dwarves and goblins kind of magic that is found in fairy-tales and fantasy books; it's a kind of magic that we call love, God, goodness (whichever is closest to your heart)... Kids in both tales survive because they find or show kindness, use imagination, care about others... That's how we all survive in life, really, and that's what Frances Hodgson Burnett has been teaching kids for years now:)

Ms Gregory just makes the stories even more magical. She has a very nice voice, and she adds quite a bit of nice acting to her reading, which I think is important when it comes to books for kids. The listener has no problem recognizing the characters and the voices given to them nicely mirror their personalities. Definitely a win in terms of book interpretations:)

Wonderful in every way :)

I love both of these stories and reread them quite often. To have them both available for listening, and so beautifully narrated, is an absolute joy.

Loving tale of growing out of darkness into a life

Great narration makes this a book worth listening to. Heidi Gregory gives life to the various characters with her voice. She enhances a wonderful story by Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden. I love listening to this story even though it's been years since I turned the pages of my old book. The story remains relevant and engaging after all these years!

I lke The Secret Garden much better than A Little Princess...

Two Lovely Classics

These two stories are such classics! I love them both and am happy to have them. My girls listened raptly with me through BOTH books! It was wonderful. The narration by Heidi Gregory was excellent as usual. Ms Gregory really brings the stories to life with the various voices and proper inflections. Two great stories and an awesome narrator makes this a wonderful listen!
