Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The fact that the book has survived for so many years. It made me and our granddaughter laugh out loud. Good to see that some things don’t change. Enjoyed now by a 6 year old girl who loves to read and as does her 71 year old Nana. Just the best!
Although, I did forget some things she does that I don't necessarily want my kids to emulate. The important thing is, she's a feisty redhead like their mom, and she's super cool and rich like their mom hopes to be one day.
I have listened to the first book of the series on adibale about a million times so when I learned about this book I tryed to get it right away I just got it years after it came out. It was the best book ever!
Pippi Goes On Board is a wonderful book for kids or adults. When I was young, my mother read me Pippi Longstocking. Now, as an adult, I am enjoying the series at least as much as I did as a child, though I am getting different things out of it (I was inspired to return to it because of of reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo). I guess what I love about Pippi is that she may not always follow the rules, but she always does what is right.
My kids are 7 and 8 and Pippi Longstocking is one of our favorite chapter books to read. We still read picture books but they also like to listen to a few chapters every night after our regular picture books. Good for them to use their imagination when being read a book with no pictures. Actually there's one picture per chapter, but for most of the reading they have to imagine the scenes.
After I got over some of the adult / authority-figure treatment, I found these stories oddly compelling, interesting and even exhilarating. Not my favorite of all time, perhaps, but charming and empowering in an era when those two qualities are being depleted from books and movies aimed at young girls.
Books came bent because they were packaged somewhat carelessly. The content and such is great, I grew up reading these and wanted my niece to read them too but for now I read them to her until she learns to read on her own.
