This book is amazing. I used to teach second grade. I can see using this book with a group of children doing an in-depth study of The Secret Garden. This is a "must have" to go along with The Secret Garden. There are such things as recipes of the times, traditions, and character analysis.The book explains a lot of "proper" English conduct. After reading the book the first time, I had to read the Secret Garden again. I can't say enough positives about this book and the ideas and activities it could generate. A Year in at Secret Garden really makes the reader feel that he/she is a part of the Secret Garden. AYear in the Secret Garden is available at Amazon.com in book and Kindle format.
