Betsy & Tacy Go Over the Big Hill



by Maud Hart Lovelace

Published 1942

I feel like a broken record–these books are so adorable and sweet!  In this book, the girls decide to crown a queen of spring.  However, Betsy and Tacy’s older sisters have already decided to do the same thing!  Drama ensues.

What I really love about these books is how beautifully and kindly Lovelace portrays family.  Betsy and her sister have always gotten along so well, that to see them in the midst of a serious argument is really quite distressing.  But the way that they make up, and the way that everything comes together in the end–perfect.

I am enjoying these books so very, very much, and cannot recommend them highly enough.  5/5.
