Latest Kid Read "Pippi Longstocking"
This book, Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren, wasn't so much a character building book as it was a fun, think-out-of-the-box type book. Pippi is always doing the most strange and exciting things that kept the kids on their toes to hear more. What it teaches in a very nondirect way is that its okay to be different. It makes the world a much more exciting place. Don't we all wish we had Pippi Longstocking as a friend growing up? Thinking outside of the norm for finding things to do around the house or making the most of a seemingly dull situation is what Pippi does best and we can all learn from.
