It tells the story of Jo Bhaer and the children at Plumfield Estate School. It was inspired by the death of Alcott's brother-in-law, which reveals itself in one of the last chapters, when a beloved character from Little Women passes away.

What a gem! Having been an elementary school teacher for 30 years, I know the strength of this book's theme. Children do blossom best when their days are filled with love, their eyes are encouraged to value virtue and the hearts are taught to seek ways to respect each other.
This book spoke to me as a child, a young mother and once again as a grandmother. A true classic!
