Illustrated Junior Library: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (1947, Hardcover, Deluxe)
It is a great book for little girls. I will be looking forward to looking at more books for her in the future. One of my all time favorite classics! Little women will always be that one story I can re read over and over. Very good quality and in great condition! The story in itself was everything I had remembered, but having I arrive with an area that was blacked out on the cover with a black marker made I lessen the experience of being able to gift it to my granddaughter for he Great Illustrated Classics collection.
Quality of paper is poor and the few illustrations contained within aren't worth the effort it took to print them. I rarely have to return anything to Amazon but this book I returned immediately. Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women", first published in , is a classic book that espouses good Christian values. It is a feminist in character, but is comforting to both men and women of all ages. This is the story of four sisters of the March family: However it's not in print any longer so I paid a bit more to buy a good used condition of the book.
I'm in the process of reading it with my daughter and I realize it ends when Meg gets engaged. Which is really only half the book, leaving out Beth's death, Laurie and Amy, etc. Just FYI, since that probably explains why it is no longer in print and I would have purchase a different edition had I known that. This is not the complete book. This is only the first part. Super annoying since I did not see it anywhere in the description. The book it self is wonder but this copy is a waste of your money.
This story opened my eyes as a very young girl to the awe and magic of books. For the first time, I realised what it was like to become immersed in the characters of a novel and enchanted with the loves and lives of Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy and of course, Laurie. As I was transported back to New England during the Civil War era, this book ignited a love of historical fiction that I have to this day at the old age of As a child with no sisters, I read with wonder the day to day relationship between the sisters, leaving me envious and longing for that kind of closeness.
When I first read this book, my youngest brother was very ill and died soon after, I felt such sorrow and empathy for frail, gentle Beth. I recommend this classic novel to readers of all ages. Literally could not follow the paragraphs, sentences, or line of text.
Little Women - Alma Books
This is a book I've read many times, and with a bit of nostalgia, decided to reread. Deleted after one or two chapters and repurchased a different edition. Don't waste your time. Little women is a rich, old-fashioned, clear and soulful book that holds oceans of feeling. Set in mid s? America, this novel offers a peak into the past and is accurate like a history book. Jo, Laurie, Meg, Amy and Beth will thrill you with their simple joys and heartfelt grievances of growing up. This book stretches out from when the girls are children to mid-teens to when they are grown and married.
Although it is advertised to have illustrations my kindle edition didn't have any.

Maybe it's just me. I read the entire thing over several months, the thing is thicker than an ordinary dictonay and I feel it to be a great addition to your library. Some parts are boring beyond words, just a few, but feel free to skip it.
Or you could just plow through it like I did. This is for the Kindle Edition: The story needs no review, but the illustrations can be a problem. They work fine on the Kindle app on my ipad. On my Kindle Fire, however, the illustrations don't work right and it causes you to loose the first sentence in each chapter. Not a real problem, but you should try for a sample first to see how that works on your device. The illustrations are nice. A story of love and family. Little Women is a timeless classic. The story is told in two parts. The first part focuses of the four young March daughters: Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth.
The story is told in the nineteenth century in a town setting. The March family is a loving family with a wise and lady mother who is trying to teach values, empathy, and love to her four daughters, while their father is a chaplain in the Civil War. The family is poor and struggle with finances.

But the girls, led by rambunctious tomboy Jo, have wonderful times as they read, sketch, write and perform plays, and invent secret clubs. Each girl is different in character with ladylike lovely Meg, boyish Jo, elegant Amy, and home loving, faithful Beth. Jo and her family adopt the motherless and fatherless rich boy and neighbor, Laurie into their family. There is love, laughter, sisterly quarrels, and sadness woven into a beautiful family story. In the second part, the story begins with the marriage of the oldest sister, Meg.
Jo pursues her interest in writing. Amy has ambitions of becoming a lady and marrying into a rich family. Beth must deal with her lingering illness and hopes to remain with her family. Laurie is in love with Jo, but will she return the love of "her boy. The March family will touch your heart and remain in your memory as they learn to step out on their own to transition from little women to beloved wives.
