By Louisa May Alcott
Color Illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith
And Drawings by Frank T. Merrill
In Little Women, Louisa May Alcott brought irresistibly to life the four March sisters, lovingly rendering their very different characters. Who can forget Beth conquering her fear to tiptoe through the great Laurence house to reach the promised piano? Or Jo selling her hair to contribute money to aid her father, fallen ill on a Civil War batterfield? Or Aut March unwittingly goading Meg into a decleration of her true feelings towards John Brooke? The individuality of these four young heroines and their deep caring for one another has been perfectly portrayed in the captivating color illustrations of Jessie Willcox Smith. . . . .
This is a great book. Right now I am in the process of reading it again (and you probably won't believe this but oh well) for the SEVENTH time!!!!! And if you're wondering where I get the time, well I read in the car, stay up late, and have done about four book-reports on it in my lifetime! Let's see that was 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, and this year, 8th grade! I have also read Little Men and Jo's Boys! And yes I do read- A LOT! Aesha:)
I love the book Little Women. I think I've probably read it al least ten times. I first read it in 4th grade and loved it. Last year in 6th grade I read Little Men. It is my favorite book along with "Gone With The Wind". C.D.
