Product Description

There are lots of children on Hill Street, but no little girls Betsy's age. So when a new family moves into the house across the street, Betsy hopes they will have a little girl she can play with. Sure enough, they do--a little girl named Tacy. And from the moment they meet at Betsy's fifth birthday party, Betsy and Tacy become such good friends that everyone starts to think of them as one person--Betsy-Tacy. Betsy and Tacy have lots of fun together. They make a playhouse from a piano box, have a sand store, and dress up and go calling. And one day, they come home to a wonderful surprise--a new friend named Tib. Ever since their first publication in the 1940s, the Betsy-Tacy stories have been loved by each generation of young readers. Ages 8 up.

Author Bio

Maud Hart Lovelace was born in Mankato, Minnesota, and based the Betsy-Tacy books on her own childhood. She once wrote, "I lived the happiest childhood a child could possibly know," and it is this joy that comes through in her books.

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.

    Not only is this story line great for young girls to read, the book cover was beautiful and inviting. Reading is an adventure that takes you places and this book is a good way to introduce young girls to that experience.

    I grew up with Betsy, Tacy, and Tib. The books are full of all kinds of interesting adventures of 3 very close friends! The set takes the reader on a historical journey during the years 1897-1917. The author, Maud Hart Lovelace, has basically written about her own life through the series. This is the second set I am buying, since my daughter, Tacy, owns the first. For more information on the series, check out the web page of the Betsy-Tacy Society.

    I have loved these books ever since I was a child in the 50s. They are always my top recommendations to anyone asking for good, wholesome books. The series follows Betsy and her friends from being 5 years old into their early 20s. I just wish I had as many good friends as Betsy!
