Thanks for stopping in!! So this week we are looking at 2 books everyone must read and why.  I think that this is a good time to go back to a few childhood classics.

I know many modern women have issues with Little Women.  Mainly due to the portrayal of their lives to be homemakers.  During a Children Lit class I took the other girls had an issue with it.  It is of my own opinion that Louisa May Alcott wrote about what she knew.  At that time women were to be homemakers, she was just showing how life was like during her time period. 
I enjoyed reading it as a child/young adult.  And then again when I read it for the Children Lit class.

I had gotten this book with Little Women.  It is another classic that just has to be read.  I remember reading this one several times and crying when Black Beauty seen Ginger on the cart, each and every time.  I am a big softie when it comes to animals, so it was a natural response for me.

Both of the these books are great and I remember grabbing them, finding a hiding spot, and reading them for hours on end.  I do fully intend to read these again at some point, and definitely having a copy in my personal library!

  1. I've read some of Little Women. I do plan on going back and reading the whole thing at some point.

    Black Beauty is a movie I loved watching, but have yet to read the book. I have it on my e-reader now so just whenever the mood for a classic strikes, I guess.
