Publisher's Summary

Little Women

Based loosely on Louisa May Alcott's own upbringing, this American classic follows the lives of four sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March. Each girl has a vision of what their ideal future will bring, but each ultimately experiences, as most young people do, something completely different. 

Little Men

Now married, Jo couldn't be happier. Along with her husband, she operates the Plumfield Estate School. Plumfield is a haven for poor orphans and is attended by 12 adopted boys, as well as Jo's own two sons. Although Plumfield is a place of trust and warmth, the boys occasionally struggle to maintain good manners.

Charming and Uplifting classics

I first read these books decades ago as a young teen. The narrator does an excellent job at voicing the characters, male and female, young and older. When I first read the books I was totally enthralled and thought how wonderful a family the Marches are. I still think that, but with a more worldly perspective, it is hard to believe that people could be that good all the time. Perhaps during that time period, without the outside influences of media and news, it was easier to focus on your little corner of the world and make the best of what you have.
The sorrow of the Civil War on soldiers’ families is definitely felt. We experience the joys and grief of the family in both stories. If only people could still behave with such morality, and show love and kindness for their fellow man, the world would not be in the mess it is today.
My only gripe is the history of Thanksgiving told to the young people towards the end of “Little Men”. Many of the Native Americans were friendly with the Pilgrims, and they were responsible for teaching the Pilgrims how to farm successfully so they would not starve through another winter. The story states that all the Native Americans were killed because “they gave the Pilgrims trouble”. Perhaps that is what Ms. Alcott believed in the late 1800’s, when this was written. I pray that parents and teachers will correct these historical mistakes when their children/students read this story today. Tolerance and understanding are themes in these stories, and should apply to all people.

Mawkish sentimentality about oppressed women

I loved Little Women as a child – as did my mother in her childhood - but, having it read to me seventy years later, I ended up disliking it intensely. I tried to persevere by thinking of it in its historical context, but I finally had to give up.
