Book Your Stocking 2023 with Meredith Lombardi

This year on the holiday series Book Your Stocking, readers are sharing children's books from their past or present. Perhaps you'll stumble upon forgotten books or discover a title you somehow missed. Should the book find its way into a stocking near you, all the better.

Today's reader is Meredith Lombardi of Spokane, Washington.


What the Sisters Predicted

by Meredith Lombardi

Louisa May Alcott's Little Women is a book that I read in childhood that has left a lasting impression. I think it still stands out to me because I was a young girl when I read the book, and the author portrayed the sisters as such unique women. They all had dreams, struggles and responsibilities but were ultimately respected as individuals. They demonstrated empathy, sacrifice and patience but still found their way. I think it made me feel like life wasn’t always going to be perfect but that I could be myself and still figure it out.
