This is a 5 ⭐️ For sure.
1: Not a good book for book reports though. It has a storyline of several stories within it.
2: I love the progression of Dan throughout the story. Mother Bhaer really becomes his mother. 😍
3: The Bhaers instill important life lessons in the children at Plumfield that many kids aren't taught anymore.
4: Polly the parrot was awful in Little Women but Jo loved her aunt so much that she kept the bird and even had it stuffed when it died.
SPOILER ALERT beneath the photo
5: I cry every time I read the chapter about John Brooks dying. It is so sweet and sad. 😭
