Editorial Reviews

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

    I cant wait to read this!!!!

    I read the first in this series, Little Women, about a year ago. I enjoyed it so much, proboably because it was the childrens version. I recently just got my Nook for my birthday and i really, realy love it. When i was thinking of books to get so i could read them on my nook, this was the first book that popped into my head. I believe it will be cool to read the next in the series of a well-loved classic. If you have already read this book, i suggest that you read the next book in this series, which is Jo's boys. Hapy reading to all!!!! :)

    Don't download this one

    If you have the Nook Android App, this could cause forceclose errors when trying to access "go to" in menu
