    1 thought on “The Little Match Girl”

    1. "Grandmother!" cried the child. "Oh, take me with you! I know you will disappear when the match is burned out. You will vanish like the warm stove, the wonderful roast goose and the beautiful big Christmas tree!"My mother used to read this to me almost every night when I was younger.She read slowly,carefully pronouncing every word as if that's the only way to read this story-carefully,not missing a single word. I've always understood the meaning and the ending of the story but I've loved it so m [...]

    2. Pinckney's illustrations tell the story so well, coupled with his text which sounds old-fashioned yet is easy to understand.

    3. The Little Match GirlGrades 1-4Traditional LiteratureThe author and illustrator, Jerry Pinkney, is credited on the inside and back cover for the Hans Christian Andersen Award for illustration, three-time Caldecott Honor Medalist, and four time winner of the Coretta Scott King awards as just a few of his accomplishments. Hans Christian Andersen is credited for the story on the inside cover, about the poor Danish girl who froze to death during the nineteenth century. Pinkney’s illustrations appe [...]

    4. My favorite tale by Hans Christian Anderson has always been The Little Match Girl. The poignancy, the helplessness moved me deeply as a child, and still does. Naturally, then, it was a story I wanted in my own library, to share with my daughters, but with so many versions, which to choose? It was blind serendipitous luck that the version I ordered, because the cover drew me in, was adapted and illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. I love it. And that seems like a feeble way to describe my emotional reac [...]

    5. I first read The Little Match Girl with my son when he was about 4 or 5 years old. I didn't know the story, but it was in my church library with the Christmas books, and of course the name Hans Christian Andersen was familiar. So I read it to him, and found myself thinking, why in the world am I reading this? This freezing and starving poverty-stricken child was not at all the Christas story I expected to be reading. I continued anyway, and to my surprise, the girl actually died--froze to death- [...]

    6. This retold story of The Little Match Girl was absolutely amazing. This story is beautiful and full of emotions. This story is retold to be a young girl in America in the 1920's who is trying to sell items to earn money in the freezing cold, and being ignored. Too afraid to go home after not making any money, she falls against a wall and begins to light matches to keep herself warm. As she lights the matches, the flame shows her beautiful visions of warmth, a feast, a Christmas tree, and finally [...]

    7. The story is about a little girl who is out in the winter cold trying to sell matches so she wouldn’t get beaten by her dad. She curls up and sparks the matches to keep warm. As she is lighten her matches, she sees a shooting star and remembers her grandmother saying that when you see a shooting star that means that someone is dying and going to heaven. She ends up dying and everyone feels very sad, but they never showed any empathy towards her when she was alive.This book is a very depressing [...]

    8. This sad story is of a poor girl wandering the streets on a frigid night trying to sell her matches. When no one wants to buy them she finds shelter in an ally and one by one she lights the matches. Each time they blaze to life she sees a vision of warmth and food and family. Finally she sees her grandmother and she goes with her up to heaven. The next day the city finds her cold body. This story is illustrated in pencil, gouache, and watercolor. The morbidness of the story is apparent, however [...]

    9. 1999 Parents' Choice® Gold Award WinnerPicture Book SoakThere are many different renditions of this book, told with the same story but with different artists doing the pictures. The story is about a young girl who is selling matches on the street on New Years Eve. She is poor and has lost her shoes, but can not go home because her father will beat her. She finds and alleyway to hid in and try to get warm. As she strikes matches for heat, different scenes (or visions) appear in front of her. I w [...]

    10. I knew the story, as I think we all do. Reading this I am once again reminded of the many stories that we read our children and I wonder at the effects that they may have. Yes, it is a nice story that she get to be with her Grandmother in heaven in the end. But the story is about her freezing to death because she can't go home because her father "will beat her" and so she sits in an ally and slowly freezes to death.This will not be on the "Must read to Grandchildren (or others)list" at my house. [...]

    11. Yes, a truly powerful story but what is an appropriate age at which to introduce it to children? 4 years old??? Yeesh, I think that is a wee young for the introduction of child labor, sadistic beatings and kids being frozen to death but that's just me.Wish I could remember how old I was when I first read this story - I know I was a kid but I was definitely not as young as 4 or 5. I was probably over 10.

    12. Sad. Makes me wonder what I would do if I saw a little girl, barefoot and hungry on the street, in the middle of the winter? The reasonable and right answer would be, I would help her, but is it the case? Usually not. Usually people pass by these match-sellers, not even glancing in their direction. This is wrong. But what is more wrong, is that we still have poverty and hunger in this world. Makes me ponder about many different issues at once. Makes me wanna help out

    13. My gut reaction is that this is a very depressing story! I'm not sure what rating to give it; I know it's a reimagining of the original Hans Christian Andersen tale, so I think I need to read that one to give me context.The illustrations, of course, are amazing.

    14. Damn ninjas cutting onionsDo yourself a favor and read this but not around christmas time. Oh, what the heck, it's going to have the same effect anyway. This is a remarkable short story, it burned my mind from the moment I read it when I was little, and it has made me feel even more grateful for my family ever since. It's simply beautiful.

    15. This book made my jaw drop. The heart wrenching story combined with the beautiful illustrations, made for a book that couldn't be ignored. The honesty and imagination that went into creating this story made it gave it a life of it's own. I would recommend this book to everyone, but be cautious of the ending for every young children.

    16. A poor little girl who sells matches and handmade flowers to provide for her family huddles on the city street as New Year's Eve arrives. She dreams of all the wonderful things around her she can not have until her vision of her dear grandmother. The story ends with her death and the thought she is in heaven with her grandmother.

    17. I guess I have never read this before - and was surprised by the ending - I sort of switched some words when i read it to Caroline cause it was so sad. It was a really beautiful but super sad story - i was sort of surprised it was a kids book. The pictures were really gorgeous too. I guess I really did like it but wouldnt reccommend it for a 3 year old.

    18. Pinkney's color illustrations underline Andersen's story. Although Pinkney has shifted the story's location to America in the early 20th Century, Pinkney shows that Andersen's story is still very powerful and relevant.

    19. This is the first time my students heard this story. It bothers me that they are not introduced to story tellers like Hans Christian Andersen. This adaptation of the story by Jerry Pinkney is marvelous. He sets the story in New York.

    20. Lovely rendering of this story. Beautiful pictures. Even though it's a sad tale, I find the ending a happy one, because the girl is no longer hungry and cold but is safe and happy with her grandmother.

    21. Different than anything I've read with Julia to date. I'm a little surprised she got into it as much as she did. She was still talking about the story this evening before bed. The illustrations matched the story better than possibly any I've ever seen.

    22. This is such a sad, sad story. (I'm not sure how it came to be considered a children's story; I suppose because Hans Christian Andersen wrote it.) Jerry Pinkney's illustrations are beautiful, as his work always is.

    23. I'm 19-year-old teen, and I'm still reading this childhood tales. Why? Because childhood tales never grow old in me.

    24. This book is a bit dark! I would say that the topics that are addressed are valid topics to discuss with a child, but these issues are very blunt and leaves a sad ending.
