The Secret Garden Book Club

Mondays 5-6pm
This interactive club, led by Miss Ashley, encourages reading the book The Secret Garden during this semester and will feature learning opportunities, creative projects, and a "food day!"

Mary Lennox, known as a difficult child, is sent to live at her uncle’s estate in England after her parents pass away. Misselthwaite Manor turns out to be a gloomy fortress. Her uncle is rarely home, and his young son, Colin, never leaves his room, convinced he’s an incurable invalid. To her surprise, Mary discovers a strange walled garden that has been locked up for years. With the assistance of Dickon, the gardener’s apprentice, Mary brings the garden back to life and discovers Dickon’s amazing ability to communicate with animals. The garden seems to have a wonderful, magical effect on all who come into it, allowing Mary to help restore Colin to health and to reunite him with his father. This version also introduces the endearing Sowerby family, who add much laughter and love to this touching story.

A bit like the classic story, “that Beast guy” was once a handsome prince — before being cursed by an old woman for being such a poor student!  The hairy dude and his servants, now collaterally cursed as common household items, become cut off from the world.  That is, until Belle, fleeing the advances of pompous Gastoff and in search of a Dairy Queen, finds a castle and a Beast in need!

As Gastoff and his sniveling pals set out after Belle, Beast warms to the kindhearted Belle, who teaches him to read and write.  When vainglorious Gastoff arrives, he finds that Belle is no captive of Beast, but rather captivated by his newfound literacy!
