Jack and Jill

Louisa May ALCOTT (1832 - 1888)


Jack and Jill went up a hill
To coast with fun and laughter.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

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 days with the joys of Christmas preparations, a theatrical production and many other imaginative events. Both learn how to become better friends to each other and their other school mates through their many trials. This is sure to become a family favorite! Summary by Mary Anderson.
