Adapting novels this way must not be legal, it make no sense to me to press 449 pages novel into 74 pages! not for such a novel.. poor glossary and ugly illustrations. I definitely wish to read the full original series.
Jo March is one of my favorite literary heroines.. which in turn, leads me to believe that Louisa May Alcott and I would have been friends, had we been born in the same generation:) Or at least someone I would have found amusing. If you've seen the movie or read the book as a child, I highly suggest reading it again as an adult and take into consideration its timing in history and the relationship between the U.S. and England at this time. Alcott is a riot and ahead of her time on so many levels ...more

I didn't listen to this version- but I did "read it" along with the Craftlit podcast. I love this book SO MUCH. I've read it dozens of times but it was fun to read it with Heather's insights and commentary.

I put off reading this one for years, because I was told the follow up "Little Men" is a better read. After watching the movie though, I was curious about the differences. I like both books.
This book is a story filled with family, friendships, relationships, lessons, and emotions. Great to keep on hand in your classroom library. Recommended for grades 5 and up.
I've read the whole set of the Little Women...a defining moment in time that capture the true families and friendship ties.

I read all the Little Women series when I was a teenager and adored them all. We used to act them out in high drama.

a perfect story about a family and their adventures. I love all of the girls and their different personalities.
Another childhood book that made me realize the simplicity and beauty of being a little girl.

It's amazing to have the desire of ganging the bad habits that those little women had
