Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Jo March is the sister we all wanted to be. As one of the four sisters in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, she endeared herself to a generation of young women who dreamed of being a little more reckless and a little more daring. In this series, "Portraits of Little Women," Pfeffer has granted us another look at the sisters, and in particular Jo, who has become obsessed with young Pauline and her lack of independence. Media specialists will want to steer young girls to this series in hopes they will want to read Alcott's books. This is wonderful reading for the elementary grades and will be a wonderful gift for that special reader in your family.
