    "This a great story that teaches kids that it is okay to be different. Pippi is brave, outgoing and unconventional. This book has entertained many generations of children. It is a true classic and is loved by all that read it. The only problem is that some of the language is old and harder to read for younger children. My older daughter really enjoyed reading it when she was young. "

    "Red haired children are no longer the ugly stepchild. They are some of the most interesting people to characterize in a book. Red Haired characters sport a beautiful mane with their red hair. It lights up any scene they apart of because the writer has to describe it with beautiful imagery. This book is a great recommendation of those red-haired characters. "

    "When I was little my mother used to read me Pippi Longstocking before going to bed, I have really good memories about this book and I love that despite being first published in 1945, it is still a relevant book for kids. Pippi is such a lovable and clever character that she inspires children to be smart and imaginative. I highly recommend it for children. "

    "I adore this book. Not only is Pippi fun and adventurous but she shows little girls that they don't have to fit into a mold that people tell them. It is a fun over the top version of who a little girl could be if she let her imagination and true self out. It is a sweet way of getting the message across that we are all unique and amazing. "
