    I had two favourite books when I was growing up.
    The first book I love was "Black Beauty"   and the second book was "Little Women".  I have seen Little Women as a movie several times on the TV. It is just a beautiful story about four sisters growing up in the days of the WAR. Their father is fighting and their mother looks after them alone. However, they all pitch in and help her and make her proud of them. Just a lovely story. BB
