Meg March is the perfect young lady. Her gracious manners and sweet personality make her very popular at school. And when she is invited to Mary Howe's fancy picnic, she badly wants to go. Nothing her tomboy sister, Jo, says against snobby Mary changes Meg's mind. Meg claims Jo is just jealous that she wasn't invited too. But on the big day, the March parents are visiting friends, and the housekeeper is called away on an emergency. Meg knows she should stay home to watch over her younger sisters -- even if it means not going to the picnic. Still, she doesn't want to miss the fun. And forgetting her manners, Meg does something that turns the picnic into an unforgettable afternoon.

I love this story because it is the best book and I am only in 3rd grade and I read little woman books! I think the best part is when meg get's an invatation to Mary's picnic and Jo does not, Meg must decide whether to decline in loyalty to her sister or to follow her heart and atend. Meg is a Lady says her mother. Amy is a lady too. Beth is a lady too. But if Jo is boyish and selfish I like her the way she is. It does not matter is you need to be a lady or not because I have a friend and she is boyish and selfish but I still like her the way she is too! When I read Little woman books I feel like one of the March sisters!
