Overview

Jo March, the tomboy heroine of Little Women, has grown up! She returns in this beloved sequel as a young woman with a family of her own. Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer, open their hearts (and their home) to educate and care for a handful of rowdy yet well-meaning youngsters.

Plumfield, the school where the boys learn "how to help themselves and be useful men," has a spirited student body that includes -- in addition to the Bhaers' two sons -- Nat, an orphaned street musician, cold and frightened when he first appears at the Bhaers' door; business-minded Tommy; Dan, a "wild boy" eventually tamed by love and kindness; and other endearing little mischief-makers.

Outside the classroom, the boys rush headlong from one prank to another -- from playing matador with the family cow to nearly setting the school afire with a smoldering cigar stub. But in the end, they prove to have a positive effect on the lives of the entire Bhaer family.

With tales ranging from tearful to cheerful, this heartwarming unabridged classic promises young readers an exciting and fun-filled visit to nineteenth-century America.

Follows the adventures of Jo March and her husband Professor Bhaer as they try to make their school for boys a happy, comfortable, and stimulating place.

Meet the Author

Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American writer best known for her classic novel Little Women (1868-69), drawn from her own childhood. Personally educated by writers such as Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau, she first gained literary success with Hospital Sketches (1863), based on her experiences as a nurse during the Civil War.

    I Also Recommend:

    Little Men for Little Men and Little Women

    The "Classic Starts" books, of which *Little Men* is a part, are excellent; they do high-quality redactions of classic novels that makes these stories accessible to your emergent reader. The chapters are shortened and difficult vocabulary changed, but the spirit here of Louisa Mae Alcott's writing remains. Most importantly, so does the story itself, which is absorbing my son. If you know *Little Women,* this is the sequel, when Jo is grown up and running Plumfield as a girl's school. I'm an English professor and can't recommend the "Classic Start" series enough--the stories have an integrity about them that one just doesn't find in the series-fiction for this age group. I also appreciate that the "Classic Starts" series doesn't pitch or market these classic works to a specific gender. *Little Men* is an excellent story to begin with, made better by the clever editing of the series!

    Good book. A must read.

    Other that some typos and a few weird markings this was a good book, i hope you will agree with me when you read this. I loved little women. So i love this book. Search bangers and mash. A very good dish.

    Unhappy with the typos

    It is a good book over all but i have to say the typos made it very hard to read and understand. Many times i had to guess what they were saying.

    A Delightful, Diverting Book!

    Little Men is my favorite of Louisa May Alcott's books. I love it's prequel, Little Women. However, Little Men is more frought with fun, mischievous events, and childlike pleasures. It's a great book to read if you want something to divert you and get your mind off of the stress in your life for at time! Since I work with children, I appreicated the fun of the book, and the fact that the main characters were almost all under the age of fifteen!

    A Great Book!!!!

    <i>Little Men</i> is a great book. What I like most about it is that the book is so <i>detailed</i>. For the chapter <i>Crops</i>, it tells you exactly what crops let's say Tommy, or Nan; Daisy, Demi; etc. grew. A #1 book for people who like Little Women. Definetly an A+.

    okay,i am so upset!

    although this is a really good book, i am really disapointed with the quality of the text. i am really upset that i have to pay for decent quality. there are so many typos that you have to guess what the basically everything says. seriously, barnes and noble, i am mad at myself for even buying a nook. when i get stuff for free it is just samples or books that were written before the 1900s that are really good books written by amazing authors but sadly i cant read them because they are filled with typos. i would rather read a REAL book ANY day. i know what i am talking about because i am a real author. so, if you have the sense to read reviews before you actually buy books, please DO NOT buy this book or any others written by this author!

    Charming

    Little Men is a sweet chapter book that provides an escape. There is no flowing storyline, it's a book filled with stories about almost each character. It will make happy, broaden the imagination and as well teach any youngster who reads it, some lessons for life. As a teenager I found this book a great read- I recommend this to everyone...

    Good Read

    It's a pretty good book- in my opnion not as well written as Little Woman/Good Wives and Jo's Boys, but still really great, (maybe I'm just romantic) This is a good book to read if you want to see how Jo, Meg, and Amy turn out.

    Good weekend read

    This is a cool book. I agree that you should read little women first because it will help you understand a couple more things. The little girl Daisy is adorable.

    Better than little women

    This was an entertaining and funny book, but the boys act like girls and parts of it were too mushy.
