A Little Princess is the 6th book I finished this year. Plus, it is one of my favorite classic books- however think it was my first time reading it. I have loved the story since seeing the movie (unaware there was more than one).
Alone in a new country, wealthy Sara Crewe tries to make friends at boarding school and settle in.
But when she learns that she’ll never see her beloved father again, her life is turned upside down. Transformed from princess to pauper, she must swap dancing lessons and luxury for drudgery and a room in the attic. Will she find that kindness and generosity are all the riches she truly needsGoodreads
In some ways, it is kind of like the classic “Cinderella” story- true not a retelling, but the basic rags to riches story. One of Sara Crewe’s greatest gifts is her imagination, which helps her and other pupils put with the mistreatment of Mrs. Minnchin. This imagination becomes extremely useful when she literally has to become a servant. She even has strong compassion towards others no matter what they are dealing with.
