4✨A little Princess has been one of my favorite movies for a long time. This is my first read through and the nostalgia was amazing to revisit. There is a lot of differences from the movie, but Sara is still the kind hearted girl that I grew wanting to be. I‘m so glad I finally got to read the book and that I got such a beautiful edition.

TheAromaofBooks Oh I love this cover!!! 2mo

Silly me - I grew up with the Shirley Temple classic and only recently learned it was a book! Burnett in her typical style shows the reader how to find the magic in the ordinary. The movie was so loosely based on this retelling of Job, having stripped out all of its many layers of meaning. Excellent, excellent.

emz711 Loved both! There's a newer movie remake too but I like the Shirley version better 2mo

Enjoyed delving into this childhood classic! I had flashbacks throughout to the 1980s Japanese anime adaptation Princess Sara, which I loved watching as a child 💗

This week on my book podcast, we‘re taking it to the classics! Superstar author Danya Kukafka joins me to chat about A Little Princess, the book that inspired one of my very favorite childhood movies. Danya and I discuss the novel‘s cozy vibes, along with its dated, icky portrayals of gender dynamics, race, and morality. We also argue that main character Sara might just be the original manifesting babe! 👑 Listen at the link in my bio.

23 Sep-9 Oct 2021 (audiobook)
Having watched various film versions, but not having read the book, I was a bit taken aback when Capt Crewe died. Sarah‘s trauma and ill treatment at the hand of Miss Minchin was far more severe and prolonged in the book version, I felt. We subsequently watched the 1995 film and Beatrix became extremely emotional at the captain‘s amnesia and Sarah‘s near arrest. A case where both the film and book have their merits.

Sarah Crewe showed the mantle of a leader, even a modern day woman can relate. She has a resilient and creative mind, that sees beyond the current. She also has an appreciation of what she has and has a big heart to always give back. This book had touched my heart in so many ways especially the last part. A story of friendship and hope. I‘ve always known Sarah Ang Munting Prinsesa but never realized her story is more beautiful than the series.

I'm going to finish this book tomorrow. I've really loved it. I'm reading a lot right now, so some of the books won't show up in the currently reading. I somehow missed reading this as a kid. Also, I know I'm late but I'm going to try and get a few pages done for the #MarvellousMarchReadathon hosted by @Andrew65 .

This is the first time I‘ve ever read this book but I have such clear memories of this movie that I had such an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Yes there are the differences but I loved it just the same.

Goodreads Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2619001627

I used this for the muggle studies exam during the OWLs last month for the #magicalreadaton

Schnoebs @Shaneyney no I haven‘t! I don‘t read a lot of fictional classics, I usually stick to nonfiction classics in my field of study but really enjoyed this one that I makes me want to try more. 3y
Shaneyney My favorite by her, really one of my all time favorites, is called Little Lord Fauntleroy. 3y

Every bit as wonderful as I remembered, maybe even more so. ❤️❤️ I read most of this on #serialreader but supplemented it with a lovely illustrated edition from childhood.

This brings me to nine classics for 2020 so far, so I‘m well on track for my goal of 24 this year. #classicschallenge2020

Currently reading this on @SerialReader but will likely supplement with the print version.

I just bought the book on the left because it was cheap and the description said it was illustrated. It‘s not, unless you count the little illustration for each chapter.

I have had the other copy since I was a kid and it‘s inscribed “Summer 1992. Congratulations—you read 10 books! ❤️ Mommy” 🥰🥰🥰

AlaMich Is it just me or is the cover on the left a little creepy? 3y
Reviewsbylola It definitely is! I don‘t think they could have made Sara or that doll any creepier! @AlaMich 3y

Whatever comes," she said, "cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.

I read this Jan 18-19 and gave it 4 ⭐️. This was a reread for me. It‘s a delightful if moralistic story. I find the older I get, the harder time I have with the moralistic element but I still like Sara Crewe and her imagination.

#2 This story is about a little girl named Sara Crewe. Sara‘s rich father drops her off at Miss Minchin‘s Select Seminary for girls. While gone on a business trip her father dies of jungle fever while also losing all his money on an investment in the diamond mines. When Sara loses her wealth she must live as a servant in the cold attic. Sara proves that a real princess takes heart and hope not luxuries. This book is a quick read and super cute!

MissYaremcio This book seems to be reminiscent of Anne! Don't forget to include all elements of the assignment, you were missing the reccomendation! 3y

I used to have this movie on VHS and would watch it over and over. After finishing the book, I can appreciate the 1995 movie. I liked the difference of story lines between the movie and the book. It was a heart warming read and I‘m glad I was able to revisit a piece of my childhood.

I don‘t think I‘ll ever tire of this childhood gem!

Despite some offensive classism and racism due to this book being a product of its time, the strong character of Sara and the influence she had on me as a child holds true. Sara Crewe taught me boundless imagination, unfaltering optimism, resilient diligence, and constant selflessness.

The magic of childhood imagination need never fade as we age! That is one message I hope to remember.
