This book.... how can I describe it? It brings tears to my eyes, and informs me that I've never been good enough. Sara teaches me a lot through her abundant love, radiant personality and unfailing courage and strength.

God bless and keep you all. Thankyou manybooks.net and Gutenberg project.

This book takes you into a new land where you just believe your standing there listening to this little girl speak and play. This is a book that has a stories in a story because Sara tells stories to other little kids. I don't really like classical stories but i read this one anyway and i don't regret it!! This is a book you should read.
