Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carolyn Haywood's stories about her irrepressible character Betsy have never been out of print, and now, thanks to dynamic new covers, the Betsy books will find their way onto the bookshelves of modern young readers--and into the hearts of a whole new generation.

Betsy is scared about going to first grade, but it turns out school is a great place. She learns about tadpoles and the true meaning of Thanksgiving, makes new friends, and has more fun than she'd ever imagined.

Synopsis:

As the granddaughter of a librarian, I spent much of my childhood surrounded by literacy. There is no series I remember with more fondness than the Betsy series. Once I discovered Betsy and her adventures, I plowed through the entire series in a short time. I even re-read them years later just to re-capture some of the innocence of childhood.
This series is a must for all young children, especially little girls who are ready to move onto longer stories.
