Today I have finally achieved the whole purpose of parenting, which is to read Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Little Princess to Klara.
The secondary purpose of parenting is, of course, to read Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden.
I’ve been dreaming of this for almost 30 years.
Of course, I’ve had to explain what London, India, boarding school and a maid are, and that’s just in the first chapter. But we are going to watch the movie, and not the recent crap set in New York, but the real one, with Shirley Temple. That’s got to help the reading.
