Based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott
This version of Little Women was weeded recently from the picture book collection. Spoiler alert! Beth doesn’t die. Evidently, Beth’s illness is too much for the average 2-6 year old.
This movie tie-in adaptation is terrible. Little Women is not something that can be condensed into a few pages and be appropriate for preschoolers. Several cherry picked scenes seemed to be strung together and patched into an uneven narration. If you hadn’t already been familiar with the book (or movie), this wouldn’t make much sense.
Does Little Women really need a picture book adaptation? Louisa May Alcott is rolling in her grave at this one.
