    1 thought on “Betsy-Tacy and Tib

    1. This book shows such an idyllic childhood, even in an era before vaccination was available for diphtheria While my childhood experiences were significantly different, there was much familiar here Maud Hart Lovelace really remember what it feels like to be a child.I particularly enjoyed the story of the three haircuts The Everything Pudding story was fun as well.For adults who have missed this book, even if you grew up many years after Maud Hart Lovelace s time, you ll feel a sense of nostalgia, [...]

    2. This is the second book in the Betsy Tacy series, and the girls, led by Betsy, continue their adventures in their small town neighborhood They are basically good little girls, but when you get three good little girls together there is bound to be some mischief These timeless stories written 75 years ago are still a pleasure to read today.

    3. Basically the same as the first one, although I did appreciate the didactic feminist moment as quoted below Freddie, when he grows up, shall be an architect like Papa What about me, Papa Will I be an architect too asked Tib Nein, you will be a little housewife, said her father.Betsy and Tacy thought that was strange, for Tib had done as much as Freddie towards building the house But it didn t matter much, for in their hearts they were sure that Tib was going to be a dancer.

    4. I like it a lot it s perfectly adorable I would have loved it as a kid what a pity I didn t grow up with these I m sick of the word bashful though P

    5. 9 2012 Stet12 2007 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, [...]

    6. Betsy loved to think up things to do, and Tacy and Tib loved to do them This book was my introduction to the Betsy Tacy series and I will always be grateful to my sister for introducing it to me I especially like this one because the girls are so naughty in it I never made Everything Pudding, but I did play Mirror Palace Update It s always fun to discuss this one with the VSC, because we always laugh so much It s impossible for me to to choose my favorite of The Tomes, but I agree with our discu [...]

    7. Hewan s review Infinity stars That was the cutest thing ever They are growing up too fast Another great collection of adventures in Deep Valley I loved the addition of realistic, practice Tib The only odd bit was a chapter about the girls trying to be good Christians, as they had some awkward beliefs about God that I had to explain away to my kid, but it actually turned out quite hilarious to see their plans of piety backfire We love these girls and their lovely little world

    8. You really have to be under ten the first time you read this Like a wise woman in You ve Got Mail said, When you read something as a child it becomes a part of you like no other reading in your life not a perfect quote but the idea is so true.

    9. Betsy Tacy and Tib is the follow up to the popular Betsy Tacy The book pretty much picks up where Betsy Tacy leaves off In this book, the girls get a third friend named Tib, a cute blonde girl who had moved to Deep Valley with her family from Milwaukee, Wisconsin It didn t take very long for the two girls to hit it off with Tib It quickly becomes apparent that Tib is adventurous and free spirited which gets Betsy and Tacy into heaps of trouble but what young girl didn t get into trouble at thei [...]

    10. I am going through the Betsy Tacy books at the instance of a friend First, I continue to love the pictures Second, this second of the series goes beyond the feelings of childhood life so well described in the first one It becomes far complicated I love the chapters on the The Christian Kindness Club I think an old fashioned reader like me would enjoy how it represents St Paul s discourse in the letter to the Romans how the law gives rise to sin Just so for the girls Otherwise, the girls are gro [...]

    11. I have no idea where I got these books, but I had the whole series starting from when Betsy, Tacy and Tib were in first grade, and ending with Betsy and the World where she s a famous journalist, and she s travelling the world alone, on a steamer ship, because she just broke off her engagement well, I don t want to give it all away These books are soooo fun, and simple and innocent, but the girls are always having a great time They really inspired me, especially to write, when I was younger.

    12. Three can make the planets sing This is the opening quote for this book, a book that then goes on to prove that three need not be a crowd These three wee girls are priceless and they belong together And the troubles that three can imagine is much divine I love all that Ms Lovelace writes as she transports me back to a time and place where I love to visit Oh And I adore the fact that the cat is named Lady Jane Grey

    13. The story is episodic with each chapter making its own plot I enjoyed reading about the three girls escapades and always wondered what they would do next I would like if each girl was distinct from the rest Betsy is usually the one who comes up with the schemes, Tib tends to be practical, and Tacy tends to agree with Betsy and be generally sweet But the three mains characters could still be individualized Cozy, entertaining reading I d like to read the rest of the series.

    14. As much as I loved Betsy Tacy I adore the fact that Tib became friends with Betsy and Tacy She was the sweet but also was willing to be a little bit naughty She added a great dimension to the books.The real Tib, in later life, lived in Chicago and my Aunt was a friend of hers and that is how I fell in love with the books.

    15. Whenever I re read a Betsy Tacy story the little girl that lives within me sits next to me and listens as I read These simple, dear little books help me remember what it was like when I first began reading.

    16. These books are just sweet and wonderful They are a great choice for younger kids reading above grade level, but I think older kids who like historical fiction would enjoy these as well Betsy, Tacy, and Tib s gentle adventures are funny and sweet and enjoyable.

    17. Read this many many times First time reading aloud to my eldest Started in late May 2015 Daughter loved this book She is excited about the series and I am excited she s excited Another generation of BTT fan has begun

    18. 3.4 starsTib, a new friend, joins Betsy and Tacy in adventures There is a simplicity and innocence to this series of books I was reminded to read this series when I re watched You ve Got Mail and Meg Ryan mentioned the Betsy Tacy books.

    19. This book has one of my favorite escapades when the girls cut each other s hair.I loved this series from my childhood They are a bit dated now, but I feel my little girl joy every time I re read them.

    20. Ah, the sweetness of that era My favorite story in the book was when they cut half of each other s hair to put in a locket way too much hair so they would have something to remember each other by if one of them should die Such innocence.

    21. My absolute favorite series growing up I have a lot of big serious books on tap for this fall so I m going to be frivolous in between them and re read the Betsy Tacy series.

    22. This book was good and they are very full of mischief they do bad things like cut each others hair and they put the hair in lockets so they can remember each other

    23. Betsy, Tacy, and Tib are three little girls who are great friends in a small town in Minnesota These books are fun because they describe play that most children can relate to even if the situations themselves might be dated Even though the setting is in a previous century, things like pretending that you don t have any food so somebody will share with you or the fun of trying to fly is notably childlike, no matter the century Much of the sentence structure is also childlike I could imagine my ow [...]

    24. Rereading this book, every word of which feels so familiar to me, was still a pleasure Looking at Lois Lenski s illustrations my favourites being the girls after they have cut off their hair takes me straight back to my own childhood If I ever have granddaughters, I expect that I will read it many times Even though the book is set in 1900, when the trio of best friends are 8 years old, so many of their childhood adventures have a timeless quality about them building a play house, making concoct [...]
