Jo’s Boys

About this Worksheet:

Louisa May Alcott wrote three books about her character Josephine “Jo” March Bhaer. The first two, Little Women and Little Men, were published over 14 years before the final one, Jo’s Boys. Jo’s Boys was published in 1886. It tells the story of Jo, her husband Professor Bhaer, their two sons, and the boys and girls they taught in their school. Students read a passage from the story and answer questions. The activity is great practice for developing strong reading comprehension skills.
