This audiobook includes: "Gwen's Adventure in the Snow"; 'Rosa's Tale"; "What Polly Found in Her Stocking"; "A Hospital Christmas"; "A Hospital Christmas (continued)"; "A Country Christmas."
And many more!
I truly love Little Women and expected a set of Christmas tales from Alcott to be heart-warming and entertaining, but while some were, others were so didactic they were cringe-worthy. If that alone had been the short-coming of the audiobook, I suspect I would have shrugged it off and planned to listen to it again next Christmas, but I also felt the narrator was slightly irritating; her inflection often seemed unnatural and her pronunciation of some words was frightful ('shone' in particular made me shake my head multiple times).
Sadly, this audiobook was just too disappointing to be able to recommend it to any but the most dedicated (and forgiving) of Alcott fans.

The stories in this collection are quintessential Alcott-embodying the homely values that so mark her work. Each story is a eloquent, but simple illustration of what Alcott saw as the true meaning of Christmas; giving joy to others.
If you are feeling a bit jaded this holiday season these stories are just the right medicine to restore your Christmas spirit.
So much to say, can't too many words! SO JUST 2 Instead
AWESOME AND WONDERFUL!
