Fully illustrated and adapted.
FROM BACK COVER: Little Women is the story of four girls - pretty Meg, headstrong Jo, sweet Beth, and spoiled Amy - growing up with plenty of spirit but little money during the Civil War era in New England. Little Women is more than a story. It is a timeless book of lessons, a classic tale of laughter and tears, and a tribute to home and family.

I found this copy in the ABC book box. This is the story I think I have read the most times in my life. I don't usually read books a second time, but I have read this one maybe 4 or 5 times, loving it just as much each time. Just wanted to make a journal entry so I can watch it travel. It's going back into the box to find a new reader.

This book enjoyed a brief stop in San Jose, CA before continuing its journey in the ABC Bookbox!

I have a copy of this book in my permanent collection.

Little Women is one of my most favorite books ever! (Although I really need to re-read it...it's been ages!) I read the story when I was extremely young and enjoyed it, and when I was older I even starred as Jo in a play of it.

I know a lot of people dislike Alcott's preachy tone (it drove me batty in Eight Cousins) but it works just fine with this story. The characters and incidents are simply unforgettable!

Journal Entry 8 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, January 21, 2014
I'm taking this condensed version of the classic novel from the Teens Bookbox. [It's inspired a number of film adaptations, of which the 1933 version is my favorite.]

Later: I'm not generally fond of condensed books, but sometimes a well-adapted version can introduce a classic tale to younger readers. However, this book does cheat a good deal; it does not contain the entire story, stopping well short of key events in the book. As the last line states, "And so the curtain falls - for now - upon Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy in this first act of the story called Little Women." If the title actually included some mention of the fact that this was not merely a condensation but a truncation of the novel I might not have minded so much, but as it is, I don't care for it. Granted, [spoiler: this way the book ends with Beth still alive, and since Jo hasn't even gone to New York yet she hasn't met Professor Bhaer, so the book also leaves the reader with the impression that she's going to wind up with Laurie. If only there were a bit "Part 1" in the title to avoid the impression that this is the entire story!]

[There's a TV Tropes page for the novel, with comments on some of the adaptationsl]
