Description of this Book

Four famous children's classic tales have been simplified and abridged for younger readers in these distinctive, beautifully designed and illustrated packages. A modern, color-illustrated book nests inside a chest that presents the illusion of an old-fashioned volume. Each chest also holds materials for an activity project that relates to the story in the book -- including maps and instructions for making models of items or costumes relating to the tales. Fact boxes appear as sidebars on the books' pages, and describe items in the stories that children might not recognize. The stories are exciting and easy to read -- just the thing to whet young appetites for more ambitious reading as the children grow older! This beloved domestic drama tells the story of a family of sisters in nineteenth-century New England, and how each of them differed from the others. Above all, it's the story of the family's eldest daughter Jo, her friendship with Laurie, her relationship with her mother and sisters, and her love for writing. Complementing the book are a mini embriodery kit, cards for a favorite nineteenth-century children's game, facsimile nineteenth-century U.S. coins, a booklet of period party games, and press-out cardboard images of the story's characters.
