Meg is a governess and Jo is a companion to their rich aunt. The girls make friends with their neighbour, Laurie who joins in their games and theatrical performances.

On Christmas day, despite giving their breakfast to a poor German family, the Hummels, they have a lovely day and an even lovelier one whe they recieve a surprise for supper.

Meg and Jo get invited for a party and luckily, Laurie is there to help when Meg sprains her ankle.

Since shy Beth likes playing the piano, Mr. Laurence, Laurie’s grandfather lets her play on his piano in his house and ends up giving Beth a gift of her own piano. Beth is able to overcome her shyness and thank Mr. Laurence and offer him a pair of slippers.

Sice Jo disagrees to bring Amy to the theatre with her, she swears revenge and burns Jo’s manuscript of stories.

Jo forgives Amy when she and Laurie save her from drowning.

Meg is soon invited to go and stay with the Moffats, a very rich family for a fortnight. Since she has no gown, her friend, Belle, dresses her up like a doll. Laurie, who is invited for the party the Moffats were going to hold, goes and greet Meg telling her that she doesn’t look nice in the dress.

One day, a telegram arrives to say that Mr. March is ill and Marmee sets off for Washington. Beth catches scarlet fever from the Hummels and Marmee soon needs to set off home again.

Soon Meg learns that John Brooke, Laurie’s tutor has a crush on her and when he sends a love note, Meg finds out that Laurie has faked it.
