The Lovereading4Kids comment
Beautifully written and at times heartbreakingly sad, this classic tells the story of how a little girl retains her courage, kindness and dignity when her circumstances are completely changed. Sara Crewe has a very rich daddy; she wants for nothing at Miss Minchin’s, the boarding establishment to which she is sent. But then Sara’s father loses all his money and so Sara too loses all the privileges and glamour she had previously enjoyed. Fortified by hope and by her friendships Sara retains her spirit and above all her kindness in tough circumstances.
The Good Book Guide Review. Sara Crewe, left a penniless orphan when her father dies out in India, is banished from the schoolroom of Miss Minchin's Select Seminary to the attic. Here she comforts herself by pretending to be a princess (a wonderful piece of play acting) and befriends a beggar girl. Sara's luck changes again. There is money left for her. she is a pauper no longer. Full oi sentiment and pathos, the story of Sara Crewe cannot fail to move its readers.
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
When Sara Crewe, the seven-year-old daughter of a rich and loving father, arrives at her new school in London from India, she is nicknamed the Little Princess by her classmates. She has all the comfort and fine things she could want, but she also reveals a kind and loving heart, a lively mind and a rich imagination. When her father dies, bankrupt, Sara is suddenly reduced to a life of poverty and is forced to live in a cold, damp attic, with only her dreams to support her.
But will they be enough?
