Marjorie's Three Gifts, by Louisa May Alcott, is a modern fairy tale of a girl who learns industry, cheerfulness, and love from three visitors on her birthday. One of the visitors rewards the girl for her hard work, one teaches her that the secret to happiness is optimism, and one shows her the importance of love in a friendship when he takes her on a surprise picnic. Marjorie ends the day feeling that perhaps her working-class status is less of a burden than she had at first thought. The stories in "Marjorie's Three Gifts" parallel the March girls' lessons about acceptance in Louisa May Alcott's classic, "Little Women."
