A Little Princess

by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Rated G
Grades 3-7
My favorite children's book from my youth! The title will be off-putting to your boys, but the story is infinitely interesting for boys and girls alike. Born and raised in India, young Sara Crewe is the wonderful combination of intelligent, wealthy, and kind. When her father enrolls her in an English boarding school, she finds herself suddenly surrounded by students and teachers who are everything but kind. When a disastrous turn of events leaves Sara impoverished, her situation becomes even worse. Watch what unfolds as Sara receives help from friends both seen and unseen, and proves that being a princess has nothing to do with money.
