Three of a Kind

Betsy and Tacy are best friends. Then Tib moves into the neighborhood and the three of them start to play together. The grown-ups think they will quarrel, but they don't. Sometimes they quarrel with Betsy's and Tacy's bossy big sisters, but they never quarrel among themselves.

They are not as good as they might be. They cook up awful messes in the kitchen, throw mud on each other and pretend to be beggars, and cut off each other's hair. But Betsy, Tacy, and Tib always manage to have a good time.

Ever since their first publication in the 1940s, the Betsy-Tacy stories have been loved by each generation of young readers.

Synopsis:

Betsy and Tacy were good friends first, then Tib moved into the neighborhood, so the three of them started playing together. They were not as obedient as they might have been--they cooked up awful messes, daubed themselves with mud, and cut each other's hair off--but they always managed to have a good time.

About the Author

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.

Re-reading this book hardly counts as reading, since I know it like the back of my hand. The entire series is so well-written and just plain fun that revisiting it is a treat. Lovelace's essential voice is unchanged throughout the series, yet she writes in a tone designed to engage readers of the characters' ages especially. My favorite part of this book is where Tib's family's "hired girl" Matilda catches them at mischief:

'"The dining room looks all right now," Betsy added. "Doesn't it, Matilda?"

Matilda looked at the tidy dining room. She swept it with a stony glance.

"I hear," she said meaningly, "that Mrs. Ray's kitchen looked nice too after you kept house for her one day."

And she stalked back into the kitchen.'

The Betsy-Tacy series is an enduring, enchanting series about enduring friendship and growing up. Betsy Tacy and Tib takes place when the girls are eight years old. They make mistakes, are annoyed by older sisters, and have a childhood remarkably like a contemporary child's (minus the electronics of course). There are certain timeless lessons we learn growing up, and they are captured by Hart Lovelace in this well written, imaginative book based on her own life growing up in Minnesota. I recommend this book often, and have never had a bad response.
