Jack and Jill

by Louisa M. Alcott


When Jack and Jill tumble off of their sled on the first good snow of the season, their injuries cause them to be bedridden for many months putting an end to their fun and frolics. Their parents and friends fill their long days with the joys of a theatrical production, their own personal mail system and many other imaginative events to make their convalescence time fly by. Both Jack and Jill learn how to become better friendís to each other and their other school mates through their many trials. This is sure to become a family favorite! Summary by Mary Anderson.
