Little men

"Jo's Boys" is the final book in the story of Little Women and the March family. The beginning is a bit dull, but then she starts marrying off the boys, and sending them on grand adventures. The Little Women series is among my favorite, up there with Little House on the Prairie, Narnia, Lord of the Rings, and princess tales.

A couple of highlights I gleaned from the book this time:

"Kindness in looks and words and ways is true politeness." P.116

Speaking of young dating:
"Good lack! What are we coming to in this fast age when babes and boys make such demands, and want to play with one of the most sacred things in life?" P.157
