10 Great Rainy Day Reads!


Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgrin

Perfect for a Rainy Day Because: Sometimes you just feel like throwback/old school on a rainy day!

Plot: Pippi, the pig-tailed, monkey owning, strongest girl in the universe, takes straight-laced neighbor kids Tommy and Annika on oodles of adventures: she tosses the world’s strongest man around at the circus, scoffs at school after attending classes for exactly one day, and could probably sue the dudes who made the Home Alone movies, as she bested two bumbling burglars in way more hilarious fashion. You’ll be surprised how much you laugh!
