What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Little Women is adapted from Louisa May Alcott's classic story of family love and boasts a top-notch cast. The father of the main characters is off fighting in the Civil War. One of the main characters dies from illness, though it's handled offscreen in such a way that younger children may not understand what happened. The March family exemplifies generosity as they struggle with their own poverty yet still manage to share what they have with others who are needier. Family is foremost, and loyalty among the sisters is on display throughout.
