I love vintage children‘s literature and yet, somehow, I‘ve never read any of these books. This one is all your fault, @rubyslippersreads ! 😄

#BlameItOnRubyslippersreads

TommieMarie74 I‘ve never read these either. I‘ve never even heard of them before Litsy...and I love children‘s lit! 4y
HKGirl Loved this series when I was younger! Maybe due for a nostalgic reread soon 😊 4y
HKGirl I think I was in junior high when I discovered them though, so I enjoyed Betsy's teen years more than her little years. 4y

December 7: Books on My Holiday Wishlist - I ❤️ed the Betsy Tacy books when I was younger (and still do today!) This lovely book actually came in the mail yesterday - I decided to start collecting the entire series, which follows the girls through adulthood. This series is on my wishlist along with the “World of Pooh” (a collection of the Winnie-the-Pooh books) and a hardcover Alice with Tenniel illustrations. #allthebooksdec #decinbooks17

I practically lived on Betsy-Tacy as a kid, so this was a walk down memory lane. Very cute and not too long. Would recommend for young girls
