Who else here grew up reading Little Women? Or still likes to occasionally pick it up off of your shelf? At Usborne, we have a beautiful version!

This inspirational story follows the fortunes of the March sisters as they struggle through the American Civil War and learn the importance of love, family, and following their dreams. Fully illustrated, this hardback gift edition is traditionally bound and has a ribbon page marker.

*This book is a complete and unabridged copy of the original story Little Women; it does not contain the second volume of the story, Good Wives.

I loved the movie Night At the Museum, where all the exhibits in the museum come to life and have crazy adventures at night. Today’s book uses that same theme.

The boy in the story is helping a mammoth find his little brother who has run out of the museum.

The baby mammoth returns to the museum and we follow him through many different displays.


This book has a great feature, lots of little lift-the-flaps with facts and trivia. I thoroughly enjoyed the illustrations and learned lots of fun facts at the same time!

This book could keep kids entertained with the gorgeous illustrations for hours. I could certainly spend more time with this book myself.

Friends From Childhood

Growing up, I was really shy. And I loved reading. So books took the place of friends for awhile. And the girls in these 6 books were some of the best people to “hang out with”! I’ve read these books over and over through the years and each time I do, there’s a little something new I find out. Have you read any of these? What are you opinions on these books and the main characters?
