Get Even More Excited About the New Little Women Movie Releasing Christmas Day with These New Books Based on the Movie from Abrams Books - Makes for Great Gifts Under the Tree! (Review) #LittleWomenMovie

Disclosure: I was sent review copies from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

In addition to counting down for Santa's arrival, my girls are also making a special paper chain to count down until the release of the Little Women Movie that will release Christmas Day, Dec. 25th, from Sony Pictures.  If you loved all the previous Little Women movies, then you will want to see this new one which features Meryl Streep, Emma Watson, Laura Dern and Saoirse Ronan, to name a few.  If you haven't seen the trailer to this movie, you have to check it out...

Doesn't this look like an amazing movie?  I loved reading the Little Women book as child, and then watching the Little Women movies that were released, so an excited to bring my girls to see this new rendition of Louisa May Alcott's book, and see what they think of it.  I will definitely be comparing it to the other Little Women movies we own to see which is better.  But, so far with all the clips and the official trailer I have seen, as well as the two The Little Women books recently released by Abrams Books, I am thinking this Dec. 25th will be my favorite. 

Abrams Books released two book back recently, that would make gift ideas for fans of Little Women.  You could even buy advance tickets to the movie and take the whole family Christmas day after you open gifts and have an early lunch.  Just slide the tickets into one of these books, and gift it to the family, for a fun family gift. :-)  These books really do make a great family gift that you can sit and read together, or flip through the pages to admire the illustrations and photos from the film.  I ended up sitting and reading them with my girls, to introduce them to the new movie releasing in December, as well all sharing all about Louisa May Alcott.  When my girls learned that her Little Women book was a semi-autobiographical story about her time and adventures with her sisters in Concord, MA.  They were excited about hearing all about this author and her classic children's story, as I am from MA and my parents live up around Concord, MA, so they are familiar with the area, and now want to go back in the summer next year to explore the different places that were filmed and included in the upcoming the Little Movie Movie from Sony Pictures.  

Here is more about the two new Little Women books from Abrams Books, which I was recently sent to review.

In addition to these two new releases from Abrams books, there is also a 2020 Little Women that will be releases soon, on November 25th -- just in time for you to pick up and gift to that special Little Women fan in your life, or even for yourself. I will definitely be picking up this new LITTLE WOMEN 2020 WALL CALENDAR THE OFFICIAL MOVIE TIE-IN

About this calendar:

"Louisa May Alcott’s beloved story Little Women comes to life with this official calendar featuring photographs from Greta Gerwig’s film adaptation of the classic American novel. Capturing the magic of the four March sisters and their coming-of-age adventures from childhood to young adulthood, this 16-month wall calendar includes stunning images of Saoirse Ronan as Jo, Emma Watson as Meg, Florence Pugh as Amy, Eliza Scanlen as Beth, as well as Timothée Chalamet as Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March."


You can learn more about these two new Little Women books and upcoming 2020 wall calendar release, by visiting  After having received the two books to review and share with my girls recently, I can say that these would make for great gift ideas, especially the Little Women: The Original Classic Novel with Photos from the Major Motion Picture which has the look and feel of a leather bound book. I really enjoyed this book and all the pictures from the movie that were included.  If you are a fan of cinematography and back story of a story, then you will love the Little Women: The Official Movie Companion.  I liked this behind-the-scenes companion as it shared all about Louisa May Alcott and how her classic novel came about, as well as the real-life photos from locations in Concord, MA that were transformed into iconic sets just for the movie.  There are even some recipes included that the March's would have enjoyed including raspberry hand pies, pickled limes, Marmee's birthday cake, and even sugar and cinnamon apple bread. We made the sugar and cinnamon apple bread the other day and it made the house smell amazing, and tasted even better!  I plan to make this and bring to upcoming holiday parties and dinners, as it tastes like comfort food, and will remind me of the upcoming Little Women Movie from Sony Pictures.


About Louisa May Alcott:

"Louisa May Alcott was an American writer and feminist, best known for her enduring childhood classic, Little Women. First published as a serial in the 1860s, the semi-autobiographical text tells the story of her years spent with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts."
