This week's letter for A-Z Wednesday is "B." So I went to my shelves, and this is what I pulled out.

Betsy-Tacy, by Maud Hart Lovelace (first published 1940)

1. Book Details at Wikipedia. You can read my review here.

2. Description from GoodReads:
Betsy and Tacy were two little five-year-olds, such inseparable friends that they were regarded almost as one. These stories of their friendship present a very real picture of young children living in the early 1900's. Each book features amusing illustrations by award-winning author/illustrator Lois Lenski.
3. And a photo of the recent hard cover edition:


  1. I remember these girls. I need to reread. I didn't read the whole series. Really, I can't remember details. Thanks.

  2. Wow! I've never read these books, either. They must have come out after I grew up...or maybe I am just oblivious.

    I remember reading a few authors (back in the day) that I never see nowadays. And then I read all those student nurse books...I can't even remember the nurse's name!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. Never heard of these but they look cute!

  4. Hi!
    Have never read these books. I love the cover, very pretty! Have a great day!

  5. You know I just recently heard of these books this year. I don't ever remember them from my childhood but they sound so sweet.

  6. What a lovely book!

  7. I've never seen these before. The cover is great!

    Thanks for playing!

  8. These books have caught my attention. Thanks for sharing them.

  9. I have all of these at my middle school library but never read any of them.

  10. I can imagine that life for these girls was considerabley different than for the girls of today.

  11. I never read these as a child, but I recently read Heaven to Betsy and am now reading Betsy in Spite of Herself. They are simply wonderful stories, for children of all ages!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
