Originally published in 1939, the first book in the Betsy series has never been out of print. The story follows sweet, adorable Betsy as she starts first grade. Her adventures, such as getting lost as she walks to school, are not fast-paced, but they are cute, uplifting, and wholesome—a beautiful look at the innocence of childhood. Children, especially girls, will probably like the books up through age nine.
Books in this series we have reviewed and recommend: “B” is for Betsy, Betsy and Billy, Back to School with Betsy, Betsy and the Boys, Betsy’s Little Star, Betsy and the Circus, Betsy’s Busy Summer, Betsy’s Winterhouse, Snowbound with Betsy, Betsy and Mr. Kilpatrick, Merry Christmas from Betsy, Betsy’s Play School
