All member reviews for Pippi Longstocking

A classic

I think that Pippi Longstocking is a brilliant character, and I don't find her behavior to be an issue. Pippi reserves her worst behavior for adults who treat children in a condesending way. I actually find that Pippi can teach a positive message: just because someone is bigger than you, doesn't mean they have the right to treat you any way they please. Sometimes children need to hear stories where everyone isn't too perfect. After all, we all have our flaws. Pippi might be unconventional, but she isn't mean.

This was of my favourite books from my youth. I still have the original (Swedish) books on my bookshelves. I would suggest this to anyone of any age.

not a great relaxing read...inspires much conversation and teaching moments

I had to pause and do a lot of explaining at why Pippi was acting that way and clarify it was inappropriate. I didn't like this, because I read with my daughter for fun and enjoyment. There are enough other times to lecture and teach. Reading for us is supposed to be entertaining and fun time. Pippi wasn't the best for this.
