Betsy-Tacy


Betsy-Tacy (Betsy-Tacy, #1)Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sweet book for children, but not saccharine. For example, Betsy is not thrilled with her new baby sister:

"She didn't know why she was crying except that everything was so queer. Her mamma in bed, a strange woman around, the room smelling of medicine and that unnecessary baby. 'It's a perfectly unnecessary baby,' Betsy said aloud. 'I'm the baby.'"

The illustrations by Lois Lenski are delightful.
