You know, I still read those books over and over and over, even as a 40+ year old. I'll get in a mood, and after I read my Bible during my work-out (on an elliptical or bike), I'll read Little Women again, or a Jane Austin, or a Chronicles of Narnia (not in one sitting, over several weeks while I work out
). And every time I get something new. I do think you can do some of them too young (Little Women might be something to save for 11/12 - seems like I was jr. high or high school before I read that one), so it does help to have someone else kind of suggest age ranges for books. So, do think about the content (Meg gets married, Teddy like Josephine, ends up marrying Amy) and whether or not you want your dd's to get romantic ideas at that young of an age. Also, there's the whole attitude of Aunt March that could be a bad influence on your kids.
Little Men definitely has less romance and has some character issues and children's antics. But, the whole issue of the "Dan" character - again, think about if you want your kids to know about gambling yet, and shooting someone in self-defense, etc.
I know, it's hard to gauge those things sometimes.
