Read this English class staple before you see the movie. Its follow-your-dreams feminist themes still hold true.
Good to know
Grown-up Meg, tomboyish Jo, timid Beth, and precocious Amy. The four March sisters couldn't be more different. But with their father away at war, and their mother working to support the family, they have to rely on one another. Whether they're putting on a play, forming a secret society, or celebrating Christmas, there's one thing they can't help wondering: Will Father return home safely?

I first read ‘Little Women’ in elementary school, so I wanted to reread it and see how my perspective has changed now that I’m older. Let me tell you: 8 years later, and I’m still in love with it!

I’ve loved this book for as long as I can remember. The older I get, the more I appreciate such a strong female character fighting for what she wants. And there’s nothing like the love of a sister!
Little Women is one of my favorite books of all time. I love all the “little women” so much and following along with their lives is always heartwarming. Also the cover of this edition is stunning!

Great novel and such a staple and beautiful time piece. Everyone must read little women as it is such a classic that was way ahead of it’s time. It has romance, drama, and a little bit of everything.

A classic highlighting the inner lives of young women, their joys & sorrows, hopes & dreams. I read this every summer as a kid, and found myself identifying with all four sisters in various ways. Love
