The Lovereading4Kids comment
Chosen by Jacqueline Wilson. Little Women is a heart-warming tale about the endearing March sisters and if you love a good story then look no further. Times are hard for the March sisters - their father's away at war and the family is short of money - but these girls don't dwell on such matters and always look on the bright side - but what fate holds in store for the girls, only time will tell.
What Jacqueline Wilson says of one of her all-time favourite books:
'I read this wonderful story of four 19th century American sisters over and over again, particularly identifying with Jo, the tomboy sister who is desperate to be a writer.'
Little Women in a nutshell:
Four sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth & Amy – at home with mother. Father away at war. Short of money but always look on the bright side. Amy likes boy next door but he loves Jo, although eventually marries Amy. Beth gets scarlet fever – they think
she’s better but in the end she dies. Boo Hoo!
