Pippi Longstocking

When Eva told me that their obligatory reading for February is going to be Pippi Longstocking I was really happy and excited. I remember that when I was her age I simply adored this mischievous, adventurous girl and was amazed by her truly remarkable lifestyle and all her ventures. Watching the Pippi series was quite exciting and refreshing for one's mind. Her free spirit, unconventional behavior, lack of fear, straightforwardness, independence, bright-shining positivism and especially the ability to transform her faults into virtues were the traits that attracted us to her.

I can't wait for Eva to discover Pippi's world. I hope it to leave traces in her that will make her remember what beautiful, joyful, imaginative and worry-less period childhood is and that she''ll always treasure the child inside her.I hope it will boost up and nurture her reasoning and imagination. I believe that gloomy, void and hollow is the life of the one with lack of imagination because as the great Einstein once said: "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

The 1988 Pippi Longstocking film was one of my absolute favourites when I was a kid... This was my favourite scene:

I always thought Pippi was so amazing and creative!
