Louisa May Alcott GREATEST WORKS

"The very best of books to reach the hearts of the young of any age"


LOUISA MAY ALCOTT is universally recognized as the greatest and most popular story-teller for children in her generation. She has known the way to the hearts of young people, not only in her own class, or even country, but in every condition of life, and in many foreign lands. Plato says, "Beware of those who teach fables to children;" and it is impossible to estimate the influence which the popular writer of fiction has over the audience he wins to listen to his tales. The preacher, the teacher, the didactic writer find their audience in hours of strength, with critical faculties all alive, to question their propositions and refute their arguments. The novelist comes to us in the intervals of recreation and relaxation, and by his seductive powers of imagination and sentiment takes possession of the fancy and the heart before judgment and reason are aroused to defend the citadel. It well becomes us, then, who would iv guard young minds from subtle temptations, to study the character of those works which charm and delight the children.

Of no author can it be more truly said than of Louisa Alcott that her works are a revelation of herself. She rarely sought for the material of her stories in old chronicles, or foreign adventures. Her capital was her own life and experiences and those of others directly about her; and her own well-remembered girlish frolics and fancies were sure to find responsive enjoyment in the minds of other girls.

Meet the Author

Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888) was an American novelist best known as author of the novel Little Women and its sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May Alcott and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. Nevertheless, her family suffered severe financial difficulties and Alcott worked to help support the family from an early age. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s.

I love this book. I have just started Little Women, and I must say that I am so glad that I purchased this book. I had seen the movie before, but the book is a million times better.

Louisa is great! Right now I am reading Jo's Boys and How They Turned Out! Its a great book but read Little Men first, if you search those books on the store they are free, I think• Zassdddfggbhjklmnbbcczx.oiuuytreeewwqqwertyuiopkhgdsaaazxccvbbnmnbvcxzzsadjkliiutewwqqwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnmfffrrrffffffrfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffrfgrfrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrtrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrtttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttfffddsasdghhkkjvxxcvnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnhgfderrtuiiutwqqerrthhjjjkkkkjjjjjjjjjjh1224556778800@#$%&**-+(!"'::;;//,);:%$%*44-4-*--54,5,,*+44--6-*/%-56-64-&-545-45-;&&%3&7-%35-%34@$&&*6& what I just did is called Randomness
