Book Review
Everything about The Quiet Little Woman: A Christmas Story by Louisa May Alcott is heartwarming, starting with the extraordinary tale of its origin. Alcott wrote the story for three girls who emulated Little Women's March sisters by founding their own literary publication, but the magazine was lost for many years; this story is now being published in book form for the first time. The Quiet Little Woman tells the story of Patty, a young girl living hopelessly in an orphanage, who is rescued at Christmas time by a kindly woman named Aunt Jane. Also collected in this small, beautiful (and not coincidentally, Christmas stocking-size) volume are two of Alcott's other holiday stories; one of them, "Rosa's Tale," is a really lovely fable about a horse who speaks at midnight on Christmas Eve.

From School Library Journal
Grade 4-7. An entry in a series whose aim is to give readers a clearer picture of the time and place in which classic stories take place. This version of Little Women is augmented with text and illustrations that explain some of the period social customs, clothes, entertainments, etc. Also included are some bits of information about Louisa May Alcott's life. This approach seems best suited to children already familiar with the story; they may find the historical perspective interesting. First-time readers will most likely be distracted by the margin notes that pull attention from the narrative. While they can be helpful, as when they illustrate an unfamiliar piece of clothing, they are often distracting and can even be confusing in their placement. For instance, a note mentioning the Laurences is placed two...

Liza Ross's narration enhances our appreciation of this literary classic. Her appealing voice travels easily between lengthy prose sections and passages of vivid dialogue. Ross smoothly creates an atmosphere steeped in virtue, humor, and familial warmth that faithfully portrays the underlying religious and moral tone of the novel. Her repertoire of vocal characterizations brings to life the novel's range of richly drawn characters--the maturity and experience of Mrs. March, the authority and affirmation of Jo, the innocence of young Beth, and the humor and energy of Laurie. Interludes of classical music help establish the setting while they effectively separate the chapters.

Book Description
Although the publication of Little Women in 1868 earned Louisa May Alcott tremendous popularity, for a long time she was thought of as a writer of children's stories and considered--at best--a minor figure in the American literary canon. Now, at the end of the twentieth century, Alcott's vast body of work is being celebrated alongside the greatest American writers, and this collection shows why.

The Portable Louisa May Alcott samples the entire spectrum of Alcott's work: her novels, novellas, children's stories, sensationalist fiction, gothic tales, essays, letters, and journals. Presenting her more daring works, such as Moods and Behind a Mask (both reprinted in their entirety), alongside the familiar heroines of Little Women, this singular collection offers readers a rich and...

Grade 5 Up-This volume presents 10 of Alcott's short stories, which were originally published in children's magazines during her lifetime. Beginning with the title piece, in which a country girl is much happier than a pampered princess, the selections celebrate the honest, hardworking pastoral life in which simplicity is far more valuable than extravagance. In "Tabby's Tablecloth," a girl foils Tory spies; "Baa! Baa!" tells how two young sisters make certain that sheep being delivered to farmers by train are routinely given water. In "Jerseys, or the Girls' Ghost," a motivating teacher at a girls' school inspires her students to find strength in physical exercise and healthy food. Throughout the stories, selfless characters are rewarded for their good deeds. The female protagonists are courageous and...
