More About Louisa May Alcott & A12

Louisa May Alcott Louisa May Alcott was born on November 29, 1832, in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson were family friends. Alcott wrote under various pseudonyms and only started using her own name when she was ready to commit to writing. Her novel "Little Women" gave Louisa May Alcott financial independence and a lifetime writing career. She died in 1888.

Early Life

Famed novelist Louisa May Alcott was born on November 29, 1832, in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Alcott was a best-selling novelist of the late 1800s, and many of her works, most notably Little Women, remain popular today.

Alcott was taught by her father, Amos Bronson Alcott, until 1848, and studied informally with family friends such as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Theodore Parker. Residing in Boston and Concord, Massachusetts, Alcott worked as a domestic servant and teacher, among other positions, to help support her family from 1850 to 1862. During the Civil War, she went to Washington, D.C. to work as a nurse.

Acclaimed Author

Unknown to most people, Louisa May Alcott had been publishing poems, short stories, thrillers, and juvenile tales since 1851, under the pen name Flora Fairfield. In 1862, she also adopted the pen name A.M. Barnard, and some of her melodramas were produced on Boston stages. But it was her account of her Civil War experiences, Hospital Sketches (1863), that confirmed Alcott's desire to be a serious writer. She began to publish stories under her real name in Atlantic Monthly and Lady's Companion, and took a brief trip to Europe in 1865 before becoming editor of a girls' magazine, Merry's Museum.

The great success of Little Women (1869–70) gave Alcott financial independence and created a demand for more books. Over the final years of her life, she turned out a steady stream of novels and short stories, mostly for young people and drawn directly from her family life. Her other books include Little Men (1871), Eight Cousins (1875) and Jo's Boys (1886). Alcott also tried her hand at adult novels, such as Work (1873) and A Modern Mephistopheles (1877), but these tales were not as popular as her other writings.

Louisa May Alcott lived in Germantown. Louisa May Alcott was born in 1832 and died in 1888.

3 Sweet And Wholesome Stories For Girls From Alcott...Enjoy With Your Own Sweetie Pie  Aug 2, 2008
Louisa May Alcott's three short stories are a nice old fashioned and sweet read for yonger girls.Each one conveys Alcott's wonderful way of depicting young girls as real people with fears and joys.

"Kate's Choice" is a beautiful tale of a teenage girl from England who comes to America to meet her family after both of her parents have passed away. She must be a choice of which of her four unlces family she will live with. Each want her to live with them for different reasons, the fortune she was left with not least of the reasons.It Christmas time and her decision will warm your heart.

Next is "What Love Can Do"....and in this story it does wonders. Two young girls wonder aloud that they are poor and their family will have little at Christmas. When neighbors learn of their sadness, they pool together and make a wonderful surprise for the family. Charity and giving become contagious.

Lastly in "Gwen's Adventure In The Snow", a group of children get snowbound and must make do with the little they have. Gwen the oldest girl, tries to put on a brave face for the younger ones.

These stories take place in the 19th century and I would recommend this book as a beautiful gift for girls probably 8 through pre-teen(and maybe even young teens).They would also be appropiate to be read aloud with even younger then 8. You really can't go wrong with Louisa May Alcott. Wholesome stories with characters who inspire with their love, charity, courage and loyalty.

Enjoy these sweet stories with your sweetie pie!....Laurie
I loved reading Louisa May Alcott books as a young girl and was happy to give these books as a gift to my granddaughter. She says she really enjoys reading and loves these books as much as I did so many years ago.
