In children’s literature, gardens represent spaces of great potential which can promote healing and learning and even send characters into realms of enchantment, mystery and magic. Begin by discussing themes in Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Secret Garden", alongside Philippa Pearce's Tom's "Midnight Garden". Study how the natural world - and wild spaces - have been depicted in children's books from the early 1900s until the present day, focusing on how planning a garden, planting the seeds and watching them grow may give kids- and audiences of all ages - a sense of purpose and responsibility.
Fee: $69.00
