Each of the four March sisters is special in her own unique way. Meg is a dreamer, Jo is a tomboy, Beth is shy and thoughtful, and Amy is a bundle of energy. But despite their differences, the girls pull together to get through a difficult winter holiday. Based on the first chapter of the enduring classic Little Women, this enchanting retelling will introduce a new generation of "little women" to the works of Louisa May Alcott.

Grade 2-3?In this adaptation of the opening chapters of Little Women, the four March sisters are disappointed that they are too poor to have their usual Christmas celebration. During the course of the story, they discover that giving is more gratifying than receiving as they focus on getting gifts for their mother and sharing their Christmas breakfast with a poor neighbor. Cheerful watercolor illustrations, done in predominantly pastel shades, and large print make the book accessible to readers about to make the transition into chapter books. However, it is doubtful whether modern readers will relate to the story's didactic message and preachy tone, and there is nothing here that will lead readers to the classic title.?Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY
