Children's Books About...
1. The Secret Garden
by Frances Hodgson Burnett
A children’s classic. Each time I read it, I discover something new. I love the themes of the secret garden being brought back to life alongside the children who play in it.

2. The Explorer
by Katherine Rundell
Winner of multiple awards, this isn’t about a garden in the traditional sense of the word, but Katharine’s vivid descriptions of the wild and untamed beauty of the Amazonian rainforest make it worthy of including on this list.
3. The Secret of Nightingale Wood
by Lucy Strange
A brilliantly atmospheric historical mystery set in 1919. The descriptions of Hope House’s gardens and the mysterious Nightingale Wood that lies beyond it are beautiful.
