A Little Princess

The girls and I watched a wonderful film this weekend called A Little Princess .  My girls (almost 8 and 10) loved it *so, so* much I decided it was worth mentioning to my readers as well.  It is the story of a girl who lived in India. When WWI broke out, her father took her to New York City where she had to attend a stern boarding school.  I started to write more about this movie, but then I decided to delete what I wrote.  I don’t want to give away too much of the story line. I’ll just say that this movie was a huge hit with the girls in our family!

This movie was was nominated for two Academy Awards.  It is a sweet story with a strong, young heroine.


The link here is to a double feature of A Little Princess / The Secret Garden. (affiliate link) The Secret Garden is a wonderful story/movie too (I read the book and might have the girls read it before we watch the movie). You can also watch A Little Princess on Amazon streaming as well and you’ll find a trailer here: A Little Princess (affiliate link)

And one other fun fact for you — The young star of this film’s real name is Liesel Matthews (though she is now married). She (like me) was named after a character in the movie, The Sound of Music. 🙂 She also played Harrison Ford’s daughter in the movie Air Force One.

That’s my quick post for today!  See you again soon here or over at our  Homeschool Den Facebook Page! Don’t forget to Subscribe to our Homeschool Den Newsletter! ~Liesl
