Product description


A contemporary retelling of Louisa May Alcott's beloved novel. Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy are tween sisters, ranging in age from nine to 13. On top of the worries facing these modern girls, their beloved father is away with the National Guard. While the March sisters do not have much and are not fashionable or trendy (much to Meg's dismay), they are resourceful. This is demonstrated by their recipes and crafting tricks that are liberally dispersed throughout the book. Like the characters of Little Women, the sisters learn valuable lessons through each adventure. Schaefer's March sisters are updated but will be recognizable to Alcott devotees. The writing is accessible, making this a good selection for younger middle grade readers perhaps not quite ready for the original tale. VERDICT While Alcott's story will remain a classic go-to, this modern-day retelling is a fun addition for larger library collections and where young Little Women fans abound.--School Library Journal "July 2017 "

"This modern-day retelling is a fun addition for...young Little Women fans."--School Library Journal

"Schaefer's version [is] jazzed-up with references to modern kids' books, recipes, and craft projects."--Kirkus Reviews

Product Description

The March sisters encounter new friends, challenges, school dances, and more in this fresh, modern retelling of the perennial classic, Little Women.

Thirteen-year-old Meg March and her sisters Jo (twelve), Beth (ten), and Amy (nine) are a close-knit group who share in one another’s hopes and dreams, as well as struggles and frustrations. Over the course of one year they get to know their neighbors the Lawrences, attend school dances and sleepovers, have first crushes, and grow closer as sisters despite their differences.

This sweet, contemporary take on part one of the beloved novel Little Women is the perfect introduction for young readers to the March family. With a craft project or recipe at the end of every chapter, Littler Women is sure to become a cherished favorite.
