Review: Betsy-Tacy

Betsy-Tacy,
Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book #3 for 2015
PopSugar Challenge Criteria Met:
-A book based on a true story
-A book you can finish in one day
-A book by an author you have never read before

This was a charming little book, sweet without being insipid. It felt like sort of a cross between “Little House on the Prairie” and the Trixie Belden books but without the mystery angle. It also put me in mind of my friendship with my neighbor Carrie, even though we were in middle school in the early 1980s, not grade school in the late 1890s. This was the 60th-anniversary edition, so it also contained a section on the author’s life and how the Betsy-Tacy stories were based on her own friendship with a neighbor girl.

I would recommend this particularly for young girls who like to read about other girls in historical stories, but other kids might be surprised to find they would enjoy it as well.
