    "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. "

    "This is such a classic series! I was so excited to start it with my six-year-old! I love when I find something that he enjoys as much as I did at his age. He looks forward to bedtime because that is when we read out of the book. This is one I just know he will read to his children as well. One of the best book series out there! "

    "This is a very good book but a little too advanced for a 6-year old. It is very long (17 chapters) and smaller type which makes it a bit more difficult for this age group. The drawings are very good."
