The Lovereading4Kids comment
Laugh and cry with the March family. Meg, the sweet-tempered one, Jo, the smart one, Beth, the shy one and Amy, the sassy one. Despite their lack of money they have a great deal of fun, have sisterly squabbles, have happy times and sad times and join them as they grow up and follow four very different paths and discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do. With an Introduction by bestselling novelist Louise Rennison (well her erstwhile heroine in fact – Georgia Nicolson), who urges you to enter into the spirit of a different time and a different place for teenagers. Growing up is tough now but it was possibly even tougher during the American Civil War. In this terrific pocket size Puffin Classics edition there’s lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who in Little Women plus many related activities to do beyond the book. An unabridged audio is also available of this title from Puffin.
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 (with an Introduction by Louise Rennison) by Louisa May Alcott
Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there's tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there's Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.
