My sister read this to me when I was too young to read it myself. When I got older I checked it out from the library a number of times after that and read it again and again. Then I read it to my children, both boys (born ten years apart) and they both read it at least once when they learned to read. I enjoyed it as much when I read it to my children as I did as a child, plus it was a joy to share with my children and see their eyes light up when I said it was time to read another chapter. When my youngest son first discovered they were expecting their first child, a little boy who is now nine months old, I chuckled when he asked, "Mom, what was that book you read me about the two little girls at the boarding home? I want to get that so I can read it to our baby." I am now buying it so my six older grandchildren (ages five to fifteen) can read and enjoy it on their nooks.

My 4th grade teacher read this book to her class in 1960 and it became a favorite of mine! I've shared it with many friends and even ADULTS love it! I'm so glad it's in circulation again. I've given many copies away and it's always got rave reviews. It's not a Gone With The Wind, but just a sweet story with memorable characters.

The characters of Nancy and Plum are a bit extravagant, but so is their living situation. The story of children sent to live in a home that isn’t their own, are looked over by a guardian that isn’t quite nice, and are made to go without many basic needs is very familiar. MacDonald tells the tale in such a way that you can easily envision the characters, what their home looks like, feel their happiness over the small things, and have your heart break along with theirs at the sad moments. It’s a fairly simple tale, sure to please many young readers. While there are a number of characters, each one is so different from any other that they are not easy to confuse. Overall it is an entertaining children’s story with a feel good basis. Reviewed by Jessica for Book Sake.

My 4th grade teacher read this book aloud to the class. I was fascinated by the book and long considered it to be my favorite of all time. Even in my 20's and 30's, I remembered the book and wanted a copy. I could never find it in a bookstore--it was out of print. One day along came the internet, and I did a search and found that my beloved book was back in print. I was thrilled and immediately ordered it. I have read it aloud to my children, who range in age from 9 to 16, both sexes. All of my children loved the book as much as I did. You simply must read it. It is a classic tale, well written, and one that I will never forget.

Like most of the other reviews that I have read, my third grade teacher also read 'Nancy and Plum' to me. I have tried many times over the years to locate this book. I can't wait until my three granddaughters are old enough for me to read it to them. This is a truly remarkable, unforgettable book.

My teacher read this book to my 3rd grade class 50 years ago. I have never forgotten the story and hope every little girl will read this book.

I am a 33year old physician and mother of one. I read my mother's childhood copy of this book many years ago. At that time I was the oldest of three children being raised by a single mother on minimum wage. In this book I found two little girls who shared my pain and my dreams. My eight year old has read it countless times since I introduced it to her last year. This is a timeless story of hope and perseverance and love.

My mom and I read it together. I didn't want to read it at first, but once I read the first page, I knew I liked it. It was a fabulous book. I loved it. It was about two kids, a boy and a girl, that lived in a orphanage. It tells about how they lived through it. A fabulous book. Anybody could read it and enjoy it.

My third grade teacher read this to my class 16 years ago and I've loved it since. I have tried to find this book for many years and am so glad to have finally found it! I hope all little girls read this book.
