The Lovereading4Kids comment
The riches to rags story of young Sara Crewe is one of the most poignant of the classics. Little Sara Crewe is only seven when her father leaves her at Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies. She is serious, thoughtful and very much loved child. And she is very, very rich. Miss Minchin has little time for Sara herself but a lot of time for her great wealth. But then the money disappears and Sara’s life is turned upside down. Sara’s genuine good nature helps her to survive the misfortune of the changing circumstances around her. And to embrace another surprise when it happens!
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
Without her beloved father and miles from home, it is very hard for Sara Crewe to like her new life at boarding school. Luckily Sara is always dreaming up wonderful things and her power of telling stories wins her lots of friends. When a letter arrives that brings disastrous news, the wicked headmistress Miss Minchin forces Sara to become a servant. Her lovely clothes and toys are taken away from her. She must work from dawn until midnight. How will Sara cope with her new found poverty? Can her imagination help her overcome this horrible situation?
