Rated 5 out of 5 by from My CHILDHOOD. So good. There's love of a book. And then there's love You know when you read a book and it's immediately like your friend? It makes you feel happy, sad, like you want to dance around, like you want to shout YES! to the rooftops, and you literally keep coming back to hang out because you think they're so awesome. That's A Little Princess for me. “Everything's a story - You are a story -I am a story.” I am absolutely in love with Frances Hodgson Burnett's writing first of all. Second of all, THIS BOOK IS THE WISEST CHILDREN'S STORY I'VE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF READING. Like, listen to this: “Perhaps to be able to learn things quickly isn't everything. To be kind is worth a great deal to other people...Lots of clever people have done harm and have been wicked.” When I read this story, I understand what loss feels like. I understand what it means to be kind. I understand that when I am angry, other people feel like me too. I understand that not everyone is kind. And I understand that I should NEVER give up. I learned how to imagine things and I pretty much learned how to cope when I couldn't handle things when I was little. Sara's story is so hopeful to me and my heart has so many feels every time I read it. I just can't let go of this story! “But I suppose there might be good in things, even if we don't see it.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A childhood must! It was one of my favourite movies as a child and the book will always have this special place in my heart. As a proud daddy's girl myself, I could totally relate to her and was absolutely heartbroken when "you know what" happened. I believe every child should read this book for the wonderful values it shares and teaches us. And I mean…the cover from Puffin In Bloom is to die for!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Those Who Only Read "The Secret Garden" Have Made a Huge Mistake... This book... wow. Beautiful. I cried at the melancholy parts, thinking how cruel everyone was to little Sara. But wait, I reminded myself, this is only a story. But a wonderful one, indeed. At times I had to remind myself that, like a dream, this book was not true, no matter how rich the descriptions were, and how they made me feel. This book is a miracle to literature. If you have only read "The Secret Garden", you've made a gigantic mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Favourite I recently read this book again to remember how much I loved it as a child. A truly phenomenal story of a girl who in the face of adversity never forgets that she is a princess on the inside. A pinnacle choice for the classic happy ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Little Princess I would love to say that a little princess is one of the best books that I have ever read in my life! Frances Brunett is an amasing writer! I highly recomend it for for people 9-13. This book takes you through the life of a little girl named Sara. If you have read this book, another great book by Frances Brunett is the Secret Garden! Hope you read them! Enjoy!
