New Customer Review - Little Women
by Louisa May Alcott
Meet sixteen-year-old Meg, the plump and matronly oldest sister; Jo, the awkward and rambunctious tomboy; Amy, the spoiled and artistic blond; and Beth, the quiet and reserved youngest sister. With their father away at war, the girls grow up under the watchful eye of Marmee. Despite the absence of their father, the family is close knit. The Marches sing together. They help the needy, even to the point of giving up their Christmas breakfast to help a starving family. Not being rich themselves, they produce their own entertainment. Of course, the March family is not perfect, which is why we love them. Under the moral direction of their mother, they also learn many life lessons. Little Women continues to be one of my favorite books. -- review submitted by Allison H.-F., a customer of the Bennett Martin Public Library.
