Best Friends Forever

There are lots of children on Hill Street, but no little girls Betsy 's age. So when a new family moves into the house across the street, Betsy hopes they will b a little girl she can play with. Sure enough, they do—a little girl named Tacy. And from the moment they meet at Betsy 's fifth birthday party, Betsy and Tacy become such good friends that everyone starts to think of them as one person—Betsy-Tacy.

Betsy and Tacy have lots of fun together. They bring a playhouse from a piano box, have a sand store, and dress up and go calling. And one day, they come home to a wonderful surprise—a new friend named Tib.

Ever since their first publication in the 1940 's, the Betsy-Tacy stories have been loved by each generation of young readers.

Again, I 'll have an excuse to read them all over again.Sacrilege that it is for me to think this, as th child of the 1970s, I preferred this series to the Little House books ( even though I read som of them multiple times as well).

Read from he erspective of a forty-five-year-old woman, it 's compelling and heartbreaking and nostalgic and delightful.

I promis I had an innate love for the Betsy-Tacy books as so many of my friends do.

I love Betsy 's imagination and her stories.

It 's also very gentle book, good for those children who do not want peril and the like.

The Betsy-Tacy series may be the most influential set of books I ever read.

Betsy-Tacy is the fourth ook in the delightful series by Maud Hart Lovelace.

The Betsy-Tacy books were highly autobiographical and Lovelace perfectly captures the innocence and magic of childhood.

ven though they are children, Betsy and Tacy 's lives are, as in real life, not always happy.

Back in 2000, I was unable to start another series so many of my book-friends loved, but I was anxiou to find myself reading thi ook about 5 year-olds, and as a little underwhelmed.

While I did n't mind reading about kids younger than me, thi was too young: they could n't possibly have the adventures I craved.I wish someone had given me those books at six or so, because I ould have oved them.

I loved stories about normal kids, when I was young -- they were so alien, so comforting, though I 'd soon crave adventure again.
