I saw the 1949 version of Little Women when I was 8 years old. I fell in love with the story. I would play dressup and pretend that I was a different March sister, depending on my mood. Ha! I don’t have any sisters (have 1 brother), but I still could relate to the love and support they had for each other. I received a beautiful embossed cover novel for Christmas that year. I still have it!

Little Women was the first " long" book I read as a child, and I loved it. Our school play in fifth grade was based on the book. I still remember the opening line, "Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents." These photographs are gorgeous. I'd love to win the book!

I would love to make recipes form The Little Women cookbook to prepare to see Little Women when it is released!

I love Little Women because it was a model for feminism long before its time. It is a book about women, for women that permeates throughout each of its pages. Little Women shows that love and relationships can be expressed in so many different ways. This book is relevant throughout a woman's life. Read it over and over again.

These are such great comments! I, too, think the book was "feminist" before its time. I also love the way each character is flawed and lovable and completely herself.


we are reading little women as our December book club read - making recipes from this book for our meeting is on the list!


I may not be number 4 but I remember it being the first educational movie I watched as a kid

Oh, I love all these comments. Thanks everyone! It's nice to hear that your experiences with Louisa May Alcott's masterpiece were as rich as mine. Cheers to you all!
