Little Men brilliantly extends the March family saga begun in Louisa May Alcott's classic Little Women. Jo---now married to the good-natured Professor Bhaer and with sons of her own---has become the unflappable matron of an extended family at Plumfield, a school that the Bhaers have founded with Aunt March's legacy. Jo's rambunctious youngsters grow up in an atmosphere full of high spirits and misadventure---a world enlivened by Alcott's unique powers of observation and sympathy.
I listened to this while mowing the grass, and I never looked forward to a chore as much as I have so far this summer! Truly a wonderful story for a mother and for children, both boys and girls, with hilarious and sobering tales migled throughout
A lovely old story with an excellent reader. We enjoyed listening to this as a whole family
Incredible performance and an excellent story, I would defiantly recommend this audio book to a friend
The best book yet..... (T, 11 years old)
Demi and Teddy were my favorites! (L, 8 years old)
the author was obviously a tremendous human being, gifted by God with wisdom and a mind to articulate so beautifully what really matters in this life
My daughter and I both really enjoy this follow up to Little Women. It is different, yes, but a delightful story just the same. My daughter was so excited to get the Audible version of it to listen to, but she just could not even make it through because the reader is so off-putting. I'm really surprised at the good reviews for this reader, honestly. I would highly suggest listening to a sample before you buy this version. The voices of the children are just so bad. We will be deleting this version and seeking out another. I think we could find better on Librivox for free.
Little Men takes place where little women left off. It tells the story of Jo and her professor and the adventures of the children at Plum field. As in little women I love how there's always stories within stories. The characters are also well-developed that you can't help falling in love with them.
I love it . it is great. little men is so cool I've sent it to all my friends.
I found this story to be a great inspiration as a mother and home educator. It is a wonderful living book for those desiring to aspire to a Charlotte Mason approach to education as well.
I really enjoyed this book and am ready to get the next one in the series tomorrow! Even though it is a good book, I don't recommend it for anyone under the age of 8.
