Book #95: For a children's book, this was not what I was expecting. I was expecting more of the same from what I have read in my daughter's other books including some of the ones on this list.

My very late check in, my gardens are over run but sunflowers are blooming, pumpkins are growing, roses are beautiful, two weeks of neglect has still left beauty and opportunity. Onward!

So @Heideschrampf asked for my #top6reads .
For the first six months this is my selection. Even if I thought, I read more books that I didn't like, I could have chosen more. 😉

Sarah83 @Heideschrampf you have to read it. It is such a cute story. 🙃 5mo
AutumnRLS I'd Rather Be Reading would have been my 7th pick for sure. I went back and forth on whether or not to include it. 5mo
Sarah83 @AutumnRLS it is such a cute book about reading. 🙃 5mo

Sorry @ju.ca.no I just had to finish this beauty today. So many gorgeous illustrations and such a wonderful translation. 🤩😍 I read another edition last year, but this one was so wonderful, I am still a bit speechless.
I chose this picture, even if I could have taken all the pictures aswell, but this picture shows all the lovely characters. 😍🤩😍🤩 I just love this story, even if I am not a child any longer. #sorrynotsorry

"It's the perfect weather for The Secret Garden!", thought I, as I've been busy planning my own garden. But then I cracked this open to find that the book I remembered from my childhood as so beautiful and moving actually features horrible moments of disgraceful racism. Can I ever say again that I "love" this book? Probably not. #problematic
