Description
A cherished holiday scene from a beloved classic comes to life in this festive, cozy picture book homage to "Little Women."
It's almost Christmas, and Jo March is determined that this year, unlike the last, there will be presents. It is in this spirit that she and her dear friend Laurie build a snow maiden for poor, sick Beth. The next day, Beth is thrilled with her present, and each of the girls, in turn, receives a little something from the others. But the best gift of all arrives when Papa, who has been away at war and ill, makes a surprise return home for Christmas dinner.
With a timeless message of goodwill and giving and stunning painted artwork, "A Little Women Christmas" makes a perfect gift for fans of Louisa May Alcott's literary treasure as well as for anyone who appreciates the true meaning of Christmas.
