Aunt Jo's Scrap-Bag, Vol. 5

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4 stars; 11 reviews)

A book of short stories by Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women and Eight Cousins. It includes Two Little Travellers, a story about two very different little girls, Lunch, a story of two women who resolve to stop the schoolboys from eating unhealthy lunches, How They Camped Out, a story of a sleighing party gone wrong, and 10 more bits and pieces from Aunt Jo's Scrap-Bag. The series is not about any characters from the Little Women books - doubtless the publisher relied on the popularity of that series to sell this one.

(4 stars)

There was wide variety in these Tales. I think my favorite was the one near the end about the pins. Some of the readers were not as well as others but that was okay because the stories were enjoyable.
