Sara is a PERFECT little "princess"

I love this book. It is a very imaginative story , and i can picture everything that happens in the book. The book sends a positive message to me. Sara is a perfect character. Her attitude is that of a princess. Her manners and outlook on everything liven up the story.

Fairytale-ish story

I read a lot of this story. I wasn't in love with it, but the writing is good so it kept me engaged. It's like a fairytale, because Sara is rich and kind like the princesses in the stories. Miss Minchin is mean to Sara, even before she loses all of her wealth, so that could be a little scary for kids, but if they've read the story of Cinderella then it's no big deal. Even though Sara is a positive role model (she's always kind to people), this book is stereotyping how rich people are beautiful and kind. It's not that bad though, but something to consider.

Amazingness in general makes up for big words. An Old-English Cinderella!

I love this book. It WAS written quite a long time ago, but it's definitely not as hard to understand as The Wind in the Willows! You should know that, while there's no REALLY BAD violence, a lady boxes a girl's ears and Sara's father dies.

Best Book I ever read

I personally love this book because how early in history this book was written.I also like how it talks about how life was like in World War II.
