Mesma dúvida do Leandro aqui... tem alguma lógica nisso? Ou a gente vai só pela repetição mesmo?
A Little - A Few / Little - Few

A little and little refer to non-count nouns, and is used with the singular form:

Examples:

There's little wine left in the bottle.
I've put a little sugar into your coffee.

A few and few refer to count nouns, and are used with the plural form:

Examples:

There are a few students in that classroom.
He says few applicants have presented themselves.

A little and a few convey a positive meaning.

Examples:

I've got a little wine left, would you like some?
They've got a few positions open.

Little and few convey a negative meaning.

Examples:

He's got little money left.
I have few friends in Chicago.

Leandro & Dude spell,

A little: Um pouco, algum - singular/incontável
Little: Pouco --> Passa a idéia de menos do que em 'a little' - singular/incontável

I have a little money. / Eu tenho algum dinheiro. --> Não necessariamente 'pouco'.
I have little money. / Eu tenho pouco dinheiro.

A few: Alguns - plural/contável
Few: Poucos --> Passa a idéia de menos do quem em 'a few' - plural/contável

I have a few friends. / Eu tenho alguns amigos. -->Não necessariamente 'poucos'.
I have few friends. / Eu tenho poucos amigos.
