"A Little Princess" - Frances Hodgson Burnett
Initial Response: Grace
First Sentence: "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 thoroughfares."Frances Hodgson Burnett
From the Reader: This book has a very special place in my heart. I was not a natural reader in my childhood, but thanks to my wise mother's persistance my love of reading grew. This is the first chapter book I remember in my childhood, read to me by my mothers lovely alto. This story is superb. Teaching people of all ages how far grace, patience and kindness can take you. - Holland
