If you have been reading this blog for the past year, you might remember that last year I talked a bit about the children's book series Betsy-Tacy, written by Maud Hart Lovelace (click for the post).
Betsy-Tacy is a book series that grows with the reader. In the first book, Betsy-Tacy, the friends are about five years old. But in later books, they are in high school and eventually there is talk of marriage!
Last year I read Betsy-Tacy, and Betsy, Tacy, and Tib, the second book in the series that introduces Tib, the girls' new friend.
These books are absolutely delightful! If you are a fan of Anne of Green Gables or Little Women, I think you will like them. Sarah, at The Library Hospital, will have the Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge in October! She is even offering several MHL books as incentive to participate, so if you are interested in winning, let her know your plans to participate so you might win!
I only have Betsy-Tacy, but I am hoping to win more of Maud's books...and you can, too! In addition to The Library Hospital giving some of Maud's books away, Carrie at Reading to Know is offering a Betsy giveaway right now with Betsy books from junior high all the way to Betsy's wedding!
I can't wait to read these with M when she's a bit older!
