Hooked on Books with The Secret Garden

Perhaps you’ve noticed how much we love film adaptations of classic books. They can win over reluctant readers and provide many wonderful hours of additional enjoyment when the family decides to sit down and read a favourite after watching it on the screen.

This week for Hooked on Books, we want to celebrate the classic story of The Secret Garden, which has recently been reprised for a new generation of movie watchers – and we’re super excited to give away some digital copies of the film! Be sure to scroll down to enter for your chance to win.

For over 100 years now, The Secret Garden has found a special place in people’s hearts. In the tale, Mary Lennox's is sent to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven, on his remote country estate deep in the Yorkshire moors after her parents’ death. A hidden magical garden is just one of the things she discovers during her explorations of his estate.

This new take on the beloved book written by Frances Hodgson Burnett stars Colin Firth, Julie Walters and Dixie Egerickx. Be sure to check out the trailer below!

Parents might also be happy to know there’s a digital activity pack that you can work on with children after enjoying the film. It is free and available HERE

Thank you to everyone who entered our giveaway to win a digital copy of the film and an exclusive book edition of the beloved classic. Stay tuned for future opportunities!
