Jack and Jill
While not the most popular Louisa May Alcott book, this delightful book is very well written and of the highest moral and literary value. Jack and Jill, close friends, are in a sledding accident that leaves them as invalids. As they recover, they learn important lessons about friendship, responsibility, and selflessness. The story is inspiring and packed with moral lessons and wisdom. This hope-filled, old fashioned, beautifully written book is such a contrast with the plethora of shallow, violent, and disrespectful books found in bookstores and school libraries today. If you can raise a child who has a love and appreciation for a book like Jack and Jill , you have accomplished something wonderful!
