Luin lapsille iltasaduksi, ja tämä oli niitä vanhoja kirjoja joita he jaksoivat kuunnella. Suomennos oli jokseenkin vanhanaikainen, ja kirjan maailmakin henkäily mennyttä, mutta se ei haitannut tippaakaan. Kiva pikku kirja. ( )

Sometimes, you sit down to read a classic, and it’s immediately so clear why it’s a classic. Frances Hodgson Burnett’s books are like that, but A Little Princess has a special place in my heart. I grew up watching the 1995 film over and over, and even though I didn’t read the book until I was an adult… Sara’s imagination and grace shines so bright.

It’s Sara that draws me to this book – it has always been Sara Crewe. Although she is repeated called out by certain peers and adults as being odd, her hopeful personality is a thing I strive to. It seems a bit silly for an adult to say: “I want to be like this child in this hundred year old book”, but little Sara has a lot to teach us about looking for silver linings, writing a better story, humility, compassion, dignity, inner strength, and friendship. Sara is the reason why A Little Princess is a classic and is still, more or less, relevant today. The lessons she teaches are necessary for anyone in any time period.

A product of its time, there are a few moments in A Little Princess that don’t shine as bright as I wish they would. While there are no outright racial comments, there is language and depictions that didn’t age well of the Indian servant who lives next door. Ram Dass is intelligent, kind, and layered – something that can likely not be said of many other minor characters from books written by white people of the time. But he nonetheless is a bit of a caricature. His way of speak, in particular, doesn’t seem right to me.

It’s difficult for me to be objective of the plot because I have known the story for as long as I can remember. I don’t think it’s cliche because this story came before so many others that at the time of its writing it would have felt more original… but it is a bit too easy. The puzzle pieces for Sara fall perfectly into place, and although she certainly struggles, her struggling does not affect the outcome of the book. It may not be the most satisfying read, for all it is heartwarming.

Sara’s imagination is delightful and there is no scene more memorable in the book than when Sara and Becky wake to a room altered by “magic” one day and it’s all such a lovely thing – the novelty of it and the warmth that there are some people out there good enough to orchestrate such things. If you aren’t interested in the book at all but want a quick read… this scene makes it all worth it. A Little Princess is an all-around darling read, but it’s this moment that makes you feel as though there can always be a little sunshine after the rainfall. I love it. ( )

Burnett, though her life was rather different than Sara or Mary of her books, really got some things. She really got, for example, poverty and the devastating effects it has. ( )

As a child I read all of Francis Hodgson Burnett's books and loved them. Who doesn't secretly want to be a princess and this book has so much more to it than that. I loved the whole secret of the attic room and the characters whether or not you liked or loathed them are so well written. ( )

I wasn't sure whether my 8 year old son would like this book since all the characters are girls, but he loved it. He felt so passionate about Sara that when she lost her papa and her money and Miss Minchin became so mean, he refused to listen to more. I had to promise him there was a happy ending to get him to keep going. It was really exciting how much he enjoyed reading it with me, since this is a childhood favorite that I read many times. ( )

Once on a dark winter's day, when the yellow fog hung so thick and heavy in the streets of London that the lamps were lighted and the shop windows blazed with gas as they do at night, an odd-looking little girl sat in a cab with her father, and was driven rather slowly through the big thorough-fares.

When people are insulting you, there is nothing so good for them as not to say a word - just look at them and think...when you will not fly into a passion, people know you are stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage and they are not, and they say things they wish they hadn't said afterwards. There's nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in - that's stronger.
Never did she find anything so difficult as to keep herself from losing her temper when was suddenly disturbed while absorbed in a book. People who are fond of books know the feeling of irritation which sweeps over them at such a moment. The temptation to be unreasonable and snappish is one not easy to manage.
If Nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that -- warm things, kind things, sweet things -- help and comfort and laughter -- and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all.
"Perhaps," she said, "to be able to learn things quickly isn't everything. To be kind is worth a great deal to other people. If Miss Minchin knew everything on earth and was like what she is now, she'd still be a detestable thing, and everybody would hate her. Lots of clever people have done harm and have been wicked. Look at Robespierre -- "
