Historic Home Tours: Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House

When my daughter had just finished reading "Little Women," we happened to find a playhouse featuring the musical. It was a wonderful book to theater experience, and she fell in love with the story. Fortunately, much of the book is set nearby in Concord, MA, and Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House offers many tours each week. 

We had a great time together on the tour, and it was her first introduction to historical fiction that really came to life. After the tour, we watched the movie of Little Women, and had a great conversation about similarities and differences in the play, book, movie, and Louisa May Alcott's real life.
