"I read every one of these Betsy-Tacy-Tib books twice. I loved them as a child, as a young adult, and now, reading them with my daughter, as a mother. What a wonderful world it was!"- Bette Midler, actor and singer --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
About the Author
Maud Hart Lovelace (1892-1980) based her Betsy-Tacy series on her own childhood. Her series still boasts legions of fans, many of whom are members of the Betsy-Tacy Society, a national organization based in Mankato, Minnesota.
In addition to illustrating the first four Betsy-Tacy books, Lois Lenski (1893-1974) was the 1946 Newberry Medal winning author of Strawberry Girl.

Maud Lovelace was only a couple of years older than my father. These stories about the early 1900s give a good feeling for that period. Just think about buying lunch; sandwich, milk, and dessert, for 15 cents and going to the library alone for the whole day.
The first four books will be a birthday gift to my 11 year old granddaughter. At Christmas she will get the other 6 stories. I have no doubt that she will enjoy them.
The Betsy-Tacy books were partially autobiographical and Lovelace perfectly captures the innocence and magic of childhood. Betsy's imaginative stories, such as riding a feather, are delightful. Even though they are children, Betsy and Tacy's lives are, as in real life, not always happy. The death of Tacy's baby sister, left tears in my eyes yet joy at the innocence of youth as Betsy and Tacy leave an Easter Egg in a tree with the belief that a bird will carry it up to Heaven and give it to Tacy's sister.
I loved these books as a child and I'm happy to say I still love them as an adult. This is a great book for young and old.
