A Garland for Girls is a classic collection of children's stories for girls by the great American author, Louisa May Alcott. According to Alcott, "These stories were written for my own amusement during a period of enforced seclusion. The flowers which were my solace and pleasure suggested titles for the tales and gave an interest to the work." "If my girls find a little beauty or sunshine in these common blossoms, their old friend will not have made her Garland in vain." L.M. ALCOTT. SEPTEMBER, 1887.
