LoveReading View on A Little Princess

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.

A Little Princess Synopsis

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?
