A delightful children’s literature – The Secret Garden audiobook
Mary Lennox, the narrative of The Secret Garden audiobook, an orphan, had a sour countenance, a nasty temper, and a bleak disposition. But who could blame her? She was nine years old and received very little attention. When her parents died and Mary was transported off to live with a distant uncle, she felt just as alone as she had before. She spent her time on the Yorkshire moors exploring the neighboring gardens…and that’s when she found a key. A strange ancient key that exactly fit in a weird small door. Then she understands what she’s discovered. A hidden garden. Mary notices a spark in the garden, which is harsh, abandoned, and unloved. So she pours her love into this forsaken garden, and she quickly learns what it’s like to be loved in return.
Perry Nodelman cites Mary Lennox as a break from the narrative pattern of the “spontaneous and exuberant” orphan girl who improves her new home and family, because such characteristics arrive later in the tale. According to Nodelman, “the resurrection of the family and the house in these novels is pushed to the extreme in The Secret Garden,” in which the repair of the garden and the approach of spring match the emerging of human figures from the home. believes that The Secret Garden audiobook was concerned in demonstrating the benefits of emotive discipline for men and boys, namely Colin, who learns how to wield his “male privilege” from Mary, viewed as “the novel’s symbol of girlhood.”
The writing in The Secret Garden audiobook is faultless. The characters are well-developed, each with his or her own distinct voice and transforming towards the end, the milieu (the garden) is clearly described and very significant in the story, the internal and external conflicts are arranged like small-to-tall majorettes in a parade, the hooks at the end of each chapter, the climax, the falling action, and the denouement tie up the loose ends from the conflicts. The motif is strong. The lessons, however cheesy, serve as school-textbook reminders: love is crucial in making the world a better place, and nature is wonderful, therefore we must protect it.
Children require boundaries, caring, and meaningful ties to their environment. If they are treated with fear and obedience, they will become tyrants in order to see how far they can go before receiving some type of direct attention, favorable or negative. If they are treated harshly, they will duck and hide and develop chameleon-like survival methods. To develop a happy, mature, and responsible human being, a balance of rights and obligations must be established, with limitations that the kid understands it cannot cross without consequences, and with regions of creative exploration where future freedom of choice can be safely practiced.
