Speaking with an Accent...

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Over the last month, I've been reading The Secret Garden to the girls. I found a great audio version, radio theatre actually, put out by Focus on the Family that I had for them to listen to after we finished reading together.

We haven't finished it yet, but I caved anyway and let them listen to it when we had a long car ride the other day.

Several of the characters in the book speak with a Yorkshire accent, so of course on the theatre version they also do.

After hearing Ben Weatherstaff, the gardener, start talking, I overheard McKenna tell Laurianna, "Hey! Ben is speaking in an oyster accent too!"

That one got an outright laugh.

Head on over to Mary's at Not Before 7 for some more cute kiddo talk.


  1. It is wonderful how good literature sparks creativity in the imaginations of our children. I commmend you! We recently toured Montpelier and my children were fascinated with the 2acre gardens planted by the DuPont's..unfortunately we didn't allow enough time (with threatening skies)to completely explore them, I just HAD to take a detour into the garden once I heard my child mention that book.

  2. Lol!

    What a great book to read with them! Good choice.

    Hope your year is kicking off well...it has kicked off, right?
