The Little Match Girl


From the publisher: “Freezing cold and unable to go home for fear that her father will beat her, the poor little match girl huddles in a corner between two buildings. As the chill sets into her bones, she lights a match for warmth. The match sparks visions of a better life—filled with blazing fires, warm food, and loving families—and the little girl cannot resist lighting match after match to keep the images coming. Powerful and moving, Rachel Isadora’s evocative illustrations and gracefully retold text bring new life to this classic tale of Hans Christian Andersen.
