HASH(0x8fee0054) out of 5 stars A Peek into Louisa May Alcott's Childhood 14 April 2005
By Cozy Cat - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I enjoyed this book. (I'm 13.) It gave the reader enough information to know what kind of girl Louisa was, what she did, how she thought, etc. I thought it was a very good read,(I enjoyed all of her great poetry) however, it left you longing to know MORE about Louisa May Alcott. It lacked ENOUGH information about her, and nearly gave you a small peek into her life. That's why I'm reading another biography on her, which I hope will let me know more about Louisa's life. (P.S...the book is short; I read it in less than a day.)

HASH(0x8ff9bf84) out of 5 stars Ok...but could have been better 2 Jun. 2003
By Jess - Published on
Format: Paperback
While this book might do alright for a bedtime story, I found it written in a confusing way and the information was in no specific order. Contrary to what the title suggests, there were only snippets of Louisa's diaries, and those snippets were chock full of the author's puntuation and added words. The rest of the book was the author's narration of Louisa's life. I will give it credit for the nice pictures and the work that must have been put into it, but if you want to read to your young child about Louisa May Alcott's amazing life, I suggest finding another book.
