Pippi Longstocking has her own way of doing everything, even going to school. School starts at eight o'clock, but that's way to early for Pippi. She starts her day at ten o'clock, and she's not about to walk. She'll ride her horse instead. As for spelling and math forget it! Pippi's more interested in drawing on the floor and finding out when Christmas vacation starts. With Pippi in class, school has never been more fun! Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
Pippi Longstocking has her own special way of doing everything, even going to school. She's not about to walk, she'd rather ride her horse. And Pippi can't be bothered with spelling and math; she's more interested in drawing on the floor and finding out when Christmas vacation starts. Pippi may be ready for school, but is school ready for Pippi? Pippi Goes to School is a great introduction for young children to the wacky, wonderful world of Pippi Longstocking.
