Betsy-Tacy Treasury | Maud Hart Lovelace
post image

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


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

rubyslippersreads Happy to take the blame, @LeahBergen 😂 I hope you love them. Downtown is my favorite; I think you'll see why when you read it. 4y
ReadingSusan The best 💗💗 4y
ReadingSusan @HKGirl I do too! 4y

LeahBergen @ReadingSusan I‘m on to the 2nd now and they are a delight! 4y
LeahBergen @LauraBeth I can‘t believe it, either. They weren‘t in my elementary school library, I guess? 4y
LeahBergen @quietjenn So far they ARE a treat! 💕 4y
LeahBergen @batsy Do! I think you‘ll enjoy them. ❤️ 4y
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen I'm so glad you're enjoying them. @batsy I think you'd like them too. 😊 4y
