Pippi


We've been reading many chapter books with Sabrina, and the favorite so far has been Pippi Longstocking. With its spirited fun protagonist, wonderful illustrations and beautiful simple prose, this book captured the entire family's imagination. Oh, and other things that make this a great story: pigtails, striped tights, tea parties, Sweden, pancakes, a monkey and horse as friends.

9.5 years with children and we've never read Pippi. Absolutely no idea why, but you've inspired me to check this out of the library this week :)

You can also tell Sabrina and CC that soon they will be visiting Pippi's country for a certain special event!
