    I was very excited to read this book atre hearing wonderful things about it. It dawned on me that this book is the children's version. The book itself was a little everywhere, and I wasn't sure if I liked the characters. The ending was weird for me, and I found myself wanting more form the book.

    I don’t really know how to rate this book! I’m so glad there is an abridged version I could read to my daughter at this point, but I was disappointed with the writing and storytelling. Having just read the Little House books it was a bit of a let down. However, the story and relationships in it are still there and it’s great that a younger reader can get into the classics early. I think in the future I will just hold out until my child is ready for the real deal! I look forward to reading Little I don’t really know how to rate this book!

    The background of the story is about four sisters who lived with their mother. And the period is about US civil war. Four sisters had different personal understanding to the life. I feel that I was like Jo when I read this book at first time, she is the tomboy. She is easily to anger and against the other power, I did these too. Just like against my parents ,teachers, sometimes even good friends. In my spiritual world , I love Beth . She is that kind of person I really want to be. She is cute, l The background of the story is about four sisters who lived with their mother. And the period is about US civil war. Four sisters had different personal understanding to the life.

She is cute, love peace, quiet ,gentle, sweet ,shy and musical. I know that is a chinese ancient queto “Too deep emotion shortens the life span; too much intelligence gets oneself hurt.” Beth did it. This is sign for express woman' "self-sacrifice", this is much more harder than all the rebellion behavior. These plot always makes me cry, even the movie was suck.

    This adaptation is true in spirit to the original. It only covers the first half of the novel- the original Little Women. The adapter did a nice job summarizing the preaching. I found the vocabulary is still a little too difficult for most 8-10 year olds. I may give this to my 10 year old niece and see what she thinks. The illustrations are black and white sketches. I feel indifferent about them. They are not exceptional but they're not terrible. There should be more illustrations. In the back t This adaptation is true in spirit to the original.

I would probably recommend waiting until the reader is old enough to read the original and skip the adaptation but as an adaptation I enjoyed it.

    I read the children’s book. Lol. I’ve seen the movie a handful of times. Plan to read an adult volume in the future.

    This book taught me that it doesn’t matter if you are poor or rich we are all still people. That means if you see someone poor don’t be rude because they are people too.

    This was a beautiful introduction to one of my favorite stories for my girls, ages 6 and 9. A lot of "Meg said..." "Jo said...," which was a bit jarring when reading aloud, but my girls didn't notice.

    A classic, and this time I enjoyed augmenting my reading with facts from Lousia May Alcott's real life. Turns out my chief complaint with the book- that it is too overly moralistic- was also what Louisa disliked about it. Makes me like her better.

    I first read this book as a very young teen, and loved it. 40 plus years later I read it again. I started reading it with a somewhat jaded eye which did not last long. I was quickly swept up in the comfort of the March Family. I laughed and cried in all the correct places which means I still think this is a great classic.

    I didnt like it. But then again, I read it 8 years ago.. But I remember reading selected parts of it multiple times. Even though I didn't like it as a whole.

This story centers around four sisters, Jo, Amy, Beth, and Meg, who grow up during the Civil War in New England. The girl's father is away at war, so they must learn to support their mother and take on greater responsibility, while still hang on to the joys of youth. The story shines a light on the themes of family, following dreams, tragedy, and love and would best be read by third through fifth graders! This novel was a WOW book for me because of the special bond the characters have as a family and because of all of the important themes the book touches on. Moreover, I fell in love with the characters as soon as I met them. Jo is an incredible writer who finds love she was not expecting to. Meg, a kind and caring older sister, prepares for a life and family of her own. Amy follows her dreams and travels abroad and Beth is the joy of the family who learns to deal with hardship. In my future classroom, I will use this book to discuss the time period in which the book is set. I think it would be very beneficial to my students, if they were to read this book in alignment with learning about the Civil War in social studies curriculum. This way, students could experience what it would have been like to grow up during this time, while learning the historical facts about the time period as well. Moreover, I will use this book in EL curriculum to discuss the genre of fiction with my students. It will be important that the students learn the difference between fiction and nonfiction stories and this book would be great practice in deciphering between the two. Students would note that although many characteristics of the story are based in truth (hardships that came with the Civil War and culture of this time), the story is not a true story.

They really are little women who stayed close to each other thick and thin. Its really wonderful to read how they go through all the dark phases while their dad is away on war. I loved the mother. I really wish to be an ideal mother as her. She is so well balanced lady. She knows how to let her little girls blossom. On the whole I loved the story. The characters in it were quite lovely. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I would recommend this book to the readers who wish to have a light read. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

    Well I loved the novel ,but one thing I didn’t like is that the story started late. like I’ve read little women the old one ,the beginning or introduction is different .this story didn’t talked about when they lost their home and when they search for another one and when they met their grandmother “ I’m sorry is it their grandma or aunt😂 “for the first time and she was kinda evil and she didn’t let them stay with her long time tell they find a new home or when jo wants to be a writer and how she Well I loved the novel ,but one thing I didn’t like is that the story started late. like I’ve read little women the old one ,the beginning or introduction is different .this story didn’t talked about when they lost their home and when they search for another one and when they met their grandmother “ I’m sorry is it their grandma or aunt😂 “for the first time and she was kinda evil and she didn’t let them stay with her long time tell they find a new home or when jo wants to be a writer and how she became a writer and about meg’s friend wedding that is canceled and she was so sad about it like this novel missed lots and lots of things!!! 🙃

    If you are like Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables, you should read this. First of all, I didn't know that this was romantic story. I only tough that there were some girls who likes to have tea party with their teddy bears and dolls BUT I was wrong. There were so much thing like Christmas, visits and mainly formal parties where everybody just play croquet. It was kind an interesting story, but nothing big.

    Easy to understand, and a great way to introduce the characters and early part of the story to young readers. However, I was disappointed that it is only the first half of the whole story. The unabridged version was originally written in two parts, but it's now usually published together. Not so with this version, and I'm not aware that the second half is available to read in the Classic Starts format. I looked at another abridged version, and it ends in the same way, so perhaps this is just the Easy to understand, and a great way to introduce the characters and early part of the story to young readers.

    I get that this is a very a bridged version of the book. But I have the regular book and read parts of it for clarification/more details. But I don’t get it. I don’t get the appeal. Maybe because I never read it as a girl, but I can’t identify with the characters in the book. Wanted to have a basic sense of the story before seeing the movie, but this book was just okay for me.

    This book is about a group of sisters who live in Massachusetts in the 1800's. They live with their mother while their father is away at war. Theres 3 sisters with different personalities, however they're all very giving people. Amy is the "rebel" of the family and she's the youngest sister. Meg is the oldest and the most giving, while Jo is the middle daughter and is very complicated.

    " I was thinking" said Beth, " of the day when we all went up the hill, taking our work with us , and we looked at the hills beyond the river, to the sun shining behind the golden clouds. Laurie joined us , you will remember, and we all talked about our dreams for the future. Now , isn't this like one of our dreams come true?"" - " I think it is ", said Jo.

    I enjoyed introducing the characters from my favorite book to my young daughter! We had some lovely discussions as a result too. (This retelling is only the first half of the complete, original novel by Alcott.)

    Didn't have the original book that I read because it's an old Greek version and goodreads doesn't have it. All in all, I enjoyed a lot this story, it has so strong family dynamics and so realistic for its time.

    This is an abridged version, it’s definitely good enough for the young reader, and hopefully when they are growing older, they can read the original one, they will feel more clear and enjoyable to the story.

    I liked it for the most part, but in the last couple chapters I was getting a bit bored with it going on and on but I specifically read it before I see the new movie coming out this year and I’m excited to see that.

    The movie is out and my family wants to see it. Soooo, I had to refresh myself. Just read the children’s version for a quick review. I don’t remember living it the first time I read it either - hope the movie is better!

    Abridged versions are good for very young folks. I'm not very young and I didn't find the adaptation to be very good. But how could it be. The beauty of Alcott's work is not in her plots, but in her wry and humorous prose. This is all plot.

    I know it's abridged but still a great classic to read outloud for my own "little women," ages 7, 9.5, and almost 12. Big sister, 16.5, is reading the original and then we'll watch the 90s movie version and wait for the newest one to come out on DVD.
