Book: Little Match Girl
The Little Match Girl is a classic fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen about a young girl who sells matches on the streets of a big city on New Year's Eve. As the day goes on, she becomes colder and colder, and she begins to light matches to keep warm. With each match, she sees a vision of a better life, but each vision disappears when the match burns out.
This beautifully illustrated edition of The Little Match Girl by Rachel Isadora is a perfect way to introduce children to this classic tale. Isadora's illustrations are both luminous and haunting, capturing the magic and sadness of the story perfectly.
The Little Match Girl is a story that has resonated with readers for generations. It is a reminder that even the smallest and most vulnerable among us deserve to be seen and heard. It is also a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope.
