Product description

Discover this beautiful and charming classic book behind the new major film.

‘Rich or poor, we will keep together and be happy in one another’

Christmas won’t be the same this year for Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, as their father is away fighting in the Civil War, and the family has fallen on hard times. But although they may be poor, life for the four March sisters is rich with colour, as they play games, put on wild theatricals, make new friends, argue, grapple with their vices, learn from their mistakes, nurse each other through sickness and disappointments, and get into all sorts of trouble.

BACKSTORY: Learn all about the author’s life and how it inspired her famous story, and find out which of the March sisters you most resemble!

    It is amazing!!! It is thought to be old fashioned and boring but it is full of adventure and fun! I recommend it to readers around 11 years old as it is quite hard to read.

    This is one of the best books I have ever read and is really getting me into the ‘learning through words’ mode. Fabulous new words in there that I can use and is a perfect story for those who are over ten ( with me as an exception!)

    Little Women is such a classic and sweet tale. Any girl who’s age 11+ should definetly try reading this beautiful tale:) It’s the tale of 4 sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy in War Time America, dealing with the hardships of their father fighting in the war, ebing away from them on years on end. The 4 sisters get up to a lot of mischief and adventures! I would totally recommend reading this.

    Little Women is a classic tale of four sisters: Margret, Joesiphine, Elizebeth and Amy. They have lots of things happening in their family. I would recommend as an age rating for the book 10-14
