    (PDF FREE) [Betsy–Tacy] ï Maud Hart Lovelace Has it really been seventeen years since my first and hitherto only reading of this book? This time around I liked it better than I did back then Back in 2000 I was eager to start a series so many of my book friends loved but I was impatient to find myself reading a book about 5 year olds and was a little underwhelmed Rereading it now after reading some of the later books in the series multiple times I appreci

REVIEW Betsy-Tacy 100 O 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 TibEver since their first publication in the 1940's the Betsy Tacy stories have been loved by each generation of young readers. Unexpectedly delightful is a phrase that keeps popping into my head as I sit here considering how best to describe Maud Hart Lovelace s Betsy Tacy the first in a long series of books about two eventually three young girls growing up in Minnesota in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries Begun at an unfortunate time when a dreadful head cold and a feeling of being out of charity with the world made the author s somewhat expository style rather irksome for me the story won me over by degrees gently unfolding its tale of two young girls who face the joys and sorrows of being five year olds togetherWhen a new family move into the house across the street Betsy Ray hopes that they will have a girl her age and after an initial misunderstanding she finds a best friend in Tacy Anastacia Kelly The two are soon inseparable they climb the Hill together picnic together go to school together and play with paper dolls together Their imaginary games often fueled by Betsy s penchant for storytelling are so well depicted that the reader senses Lovelace s fond enjoyment as well as her understanding of the centrality of such play in the life of the childBut life even for five year olds is not all sweetness and light and sorrow does touch the lives of Betsy Tacy just as change inevitable and painful makes itself felt The death of Baby Bee Tacy s infant sister is handled by Lovelace with pitch perfect sensitivity The mystery and wonder of a young child s first encounter with death is effortlessly joined to the sorrow of loss I found the scene on the early morning hillside where Betsy and Tacy discuss Bee s death deeply movingLovelace s sensitivity to the feelings of the child how the world appears to her is demonstrated time and again throughout Betsy Tacy She understands that death is something terrible and yet matter of fact in the way that so many things are terrible and matter of fact to the child who must experience them for the first time Her depiction of Betsy s initial sorrow at the birth of her younger sister Margaret is a realistic portrayal of a child s natural ambiguity at having her place in the family usurpedFirst published in 1940 and depicting an earlier time Betsy Tacy nevertheless has much to offer the contemporary reader and seems as relevant in its depiction of young girls as when it was first written I find myself wishing that I had discovered these books as a child but as one can only go forward I ll content myself with having discovered them now Thank you Constance Wendy Melody Lisa and Ginny

REVIEW Betsy-Tacy 100 Best Friends ForeverThere 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 have a little girl she can play with Sure enough they do a little girl n. The Betsy Tacy series may be the most influential set of books I ever read I reread them over and over because they never lose their beauty Betsy Tacy is the first book in the delightful series by Maud Hart Lovelace Five year old Betsy longs for a best friend and finds one when Tacy moves in across the street Together they have many adventures including going on picnics selling sand playing with paper dolls going calling on neighbors climbing The Big Hill and going to school for the first time The Betsy Tacy books were highly autobiographical and Lovelace perfectly captures the innocence and magic of childhood Betsy s imaginative stories such as riding a feather are delightful Even though they are children Betsy and Tacy s lives are as in real life not always happy The death of Tacy s baby sister left tears in my eyes yet joy at the innocence of youth as Betsy and Tacy leave an Easter Egg in a tree with the belief that a bird will carry it up to Heaven and give it to Tacy s sister If you read this book and love it please read the series It will be books that you will never forget as long as you live I also recommend the Betsy Tacy Companion which is an amazing book that disects each book and compares it to it s real life counterparts including pictures of the real Betsy Tacy Tib and all the gang I had the pleasure of visiting Deep Valley aka Mankato Minnesota for a Betsy Tacy convention back in 1996 It was incredible to step back in time and enter Betsy s world We toured the city and I was actually able to step foot in Tacy s bedroom and sit on the famous bench at the top of the big hill It was truly a life altering experience I have to thank my sister Julie for introducting these books to me and changing my life It s obvious how much these books mean to me My first born child was named Tacy Kelly Maloy Please read and enjoy They are a treasure

REVIEW Betsy-Tacy 100 Amed Tacy And from the moment they meet at Betsy's fifth birthday party Betsy and Tacy becoms such good friends that everyone starts to think of them as one person Betsy TacyBetsy and Tacy have lots of fun together They make a playhouse from a pian. There were a few books I skipped reading in my local library and this was one Most of the books I skipped were boys sports or monster books but also I tended to skip anything illustrated by Lois Lenski Illustrations were too integral to the story for me and if I didn t like the cover art or the frontispiece I often wouldn t read a book until talked into it Yep I missed some good books that way I still haven t read the Limberlost books which I remember taking down looking at and hating the drawings so much back it would go on the shelvesBetsy Tacy was another that went back on the shelves probably because in the first one the characters are not uite five While I didn t mind reading about kids younger than me that was too young they couldn t possibly have the adventures I cravedI wish someone had given me those books at six or so because I would have loved them Though I would have sobbed my heart out when Baby Bee dies as I did when Ginger died in Black Beauty and I worried myself sick over the Five Little Peppers when sickness struck But old me can appreciate the imagination of this gentle book the vivid details the kindness the faithful depiction of childhood logic when the kid isn t warped by PTSD I loved stories about normal kids when I was young they were so alien so comforting though I d soon crave adventure again Or correct agencyThe Baby Bee chapter is so simply written but in its way almost as lovely as Piper at the Gates of Dawn in Wind in the WillowsNow I have to read the others and skim my eye past the illos which I still don t like but at least I know why the figures are out of proportion like paper dolls the faces suashed Lenski was better with her folksy houses and settings
