What happens when Little Women's Jo (March) Bhaer and her husband open their hearts and home to educate and care for young boys? Even more lads arrive on their doorstep! The sequel to Louisa May Alcott's well-loved story Little Women, Little Men shares the heartwarming story of a handful of rowdy yet kindhearted boys who have a positive effect on the lives of the entire Bhaer family-including the two young sons. With tales ranging from tearful to cheerful, it's a delightful glimpse into the life of one of American literature's favorite tomboys and how she lovingly transforms boys into men.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A natural source of stories...she is, and is to be, the poet of children.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson 

“The novelist of children…the Thackeray, the Trollope, of the nursery and the schoolroom.”—Henry James

“The best boys—in the literary sense—that we have ever come across.”—London Spectator


School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—Louisa May Alcott's charming, although now somewhat dated, companion piece to the perennially popular Little Women highlights the life of the wildest of the March sisters, Jo, now married to "her professor," and presiding as the harried but happy mistress over the Plumfield Estate School—home to a small group of needy boys, relatives, and sons whose mischievous antics and emotional upheavals provide ample opportunities for Alcott to share her personal philosophy about learning and life. Filled with pathos and humor as well as insights into the mysterious world of childhood, Little Men entertains and educates in equal measure. Justine Eyre's narration slowly lulls listeners back in time to a far gentler and kinder world in which all children are cherished and nurtured to become their very best selves, providing a perfect selection for family listening pleasure. Also included is a PDF ebook featuring autiomatic startup, a table of contents, and keyword search.—Cindy Lombardo, Cleveland Public Library, OH
