3½ stars for the book, 4 stars for the audiobook. Charming children's story of life at a small boys' school in 1870s Massachusetts, but a bit overly moralizing at times. Justine Eyre did a good job with the narration, and I particularly liked her voice for Professor Bhaer. ( )

Charming children's story of life at a small boys' school in 1870s Massachusetts, but a bit overly moralizing at times. If you can overlook that, then the tales of the children and their adventures, trials, and successes are very enjoyable. ( )

There are some lovely quotes in this novel about teaching children and the effect of love and patience and good examples. I liked the extended metaphor of the garden and how Jo & Fritz were growing a garden of boys and how their harvest was shaping up. There are some fun episodes (the play kitchen and the museum) as well as hard lessons learned, all of which make the book a joy to read. ( )

Not as good as Little Women, but still memorable. Louisa May Alcott is an amazing writer. ( )
