    Some of the stories or some moments in the stories are really great either really uirky or really sweet or really curious At the same time I do not feel these moments are enough of a reward in what is mostly an OK book I had some issues getting through the entire manuscript although I think I could attribute part of the bore to the audiobook I happened to come across which was not very compelling In short if I knew what I know now about this book I do not think I would waste time reading it

    5 stars 510 hearts This is such a good little collection Like all Alcott books it mingles good thoughts with funny everyday happenings  The children’s joke the little newspaper boy Patty’s patchwork the eagle’s call the remarks upon her boys oh these are just delightful stories though I may not agree with everything 3 A Favouirte uote “’Every task no matter how small or homely that gets well and cheerfully done is a fine thing; and the sooner we learn to use up the dark and bright bits the pleasures and pains the cares and duties into a cheerful useful life the sooner we become real comforters and every one likes to cuddle about us’”A Favourite Humorous uote “‘Being a woman sir I'm naturally of an inuiring turn; and I must confess that I have a strong desire to know how it happens that you take your walks abroad when you are supposed to be permanently engaged at home?’“The brass eagle shrugged his shoulders and actually winked at me as he replied ‘That's all people know of what goes on under or rather over their noses Bless you ma'am I leave my roost every night and enjoy myself in all sorts of larks Excuse the expression; but being ornithological it is proper for me than for some people who use it’”

    For fans of Little Women and Louisa May Alcott or if you just love short sweet stories this is for you Here's a few descriptions of some of my favorite stories found in Aunt Jo's Scrap BagI enjoyed “My May Day Among Curious Birds and Beasts” in which the narrator sweetly tells of the sights of a visit to the Zoological Gardens in London It is obviously based on Louisa's own travels I think it would make for a delightful read aloud to children since there are lots of interesting animals that make an appearance in the storyOne story that is just so comical just so demure and a bit too fun is “The Children's Joke” My my What a laugh what a riot Two children get to play the part of the parents all day long while the parents must be subjected to play the part of children Each side learns big truths about the other and that sometimes life is less stressful when you just do the best you can in the life you're given I actually was reading this short story collection Aunt Jo's Scrap Bag while I simultaneously was reading a biography on Miss Alcott entitled Invincible Louisa and it was perfect timing I kept seeing so many parallels between Louisa's own life and the stories she was writing Most of her stories pulled in so many details of what was happening with her and the rest of the Alcott family in real life It was fantastic to see the similaritiesIn the story “My Boys” Louisa writes of several boys who left an impressionable mark on her life In it we see she is starting to sketch out the character of beloved Laurie though in this early story he is named Laddie I actually learned of the history behind Laurie's character in Invincible Louisa wherein the reader gets to meet the actual boy who both Laddie and Laurie are based on Pretty cool stuff can be found in history and literature eh?Although not exactly a favorite “Madam Cluck and Her Family” stands out to me as it was a strange and grave sort of story It's starts with this delightfully misleading line “There never was a prouder mamma than Madam Cluck when she led forth her family of eight downy little chicks” The story progresses as each of the chicks dies off in some unfortunate way A comically grim and rather surprising plot choice coming from Miss Alcott Overall a delightful batch of stories that I greatly enjoyed Book #1 finished for the Louisa May Alcott reading challenge found at inthebookcaseblogspotcom

    A refreshing classic cleansing mymind and reminding me of the beautifulness in the world


  10. Hilary Hilary says:

    A charming mix of LMA's reminiscences over her boys some observations and some short stories she penned If you loved the Little Women series or Rose in Bloom you may notice some common themes and will probably enjoy this little book too
