    1. I pulled out the Carolyn Haywood books because I remember them making me happy when I was about 6. Instead of letting my own six year-old read them, I started reading them to her, thinking they wouldn't hold her attention without the flash and speed of more modern books. I was totally wrong. Neither of us can wait for her to get home from school to continue the adventures of this girl with the little red ribbons. Something about old fashioned, funny stories that are told slowly yet with not too [...]

    2. I read this book back in elementary school and I don't remember anything about it except that I absolutely LOVED it. It'd be a great one for young girls and their moms. And one I'd love to revisit.

    3. The third chapter book I read aloud with my daughter was Betsy and Billy, the second in Haywood's series of Betsy books. Book One followed Betsy through first grade. Book Two follows Betsy through second grade, including chapters where the class dresses up for Halloween, celebrates Valentine's Day, and has a May Day maypole event. As with Book One, my daughter loved this book and couldn't wait to read the next chapter, and I enjoyed it for the nostaglia factor. I was highly amused by the Christm [...]

    4. I have been looking for these books everywhere and I am so glad to have finally found them! While my friends in elementary school were always checking out the more "popular" books in the library, I found myself coming back to this series again and again. I'm pretty sure I read every book in the series at least twice! I'm a little perturbed to discover that they've been re-released with a more modern cover, because I actually prefer the vintage look. Brings back so many memories and should I stum [...]

    5. Read this book because I promised my daughter I would.I love the Betsy character because I think every little girl can see themselves in her.This book was kinda boring to read straight through which is why it took me months to finish.But Betsy and Billy are so cute.It's nice to travel back to a simpler time when kids did plays with farm animals from their grandfather's local farm.Great books for kids.

    6. That Betsy. SMH. SMH. But seriously folks. It ain't right how much I care, I mean how much "my kids" care about what happens next with Betsy. "The kids" loved the baby sister born on Christmas, when the dog got loose, the old broken down house, the good manners, the adorable illustrations, the simple joys of childhood captured once again. The highlight for the kids, okay me, was when Ellen was promoted first and Betsy lost her mind to jealousy. I was like YES!SMH. SMH.

    7. I think it would be fun to sale stuff like they did in Mrs. Gray's class. Me and my brother are going to do the same thing they did. My favorite part in this book was the story of the kids dressing up for Halloween.

    8. Gosh, I loved these books in elementary school. But it was just okay for me. I guess my daughter liked it. She would laugh at funny parts. We got through this book slower than the first Betsy book, so I think we will hold off on reading the next book for a few months.

    9. Second in the Betsy series. Besty is in second grade, and her circle of friends is expanding. Billy brings daring and fun into her play day, but he is prone to get into trouble. Betsy makes mistakes, too, and has the courage to make things right.

    10. My number of stars are based on when I first read this book as a kid thirty years ago. I loved this book, and I loved the whole Betsy series. Betsy and Billy was the first one I read, and it was during summer vacation.

    11. Another Charlotte bedtime book, continuing my streak of reading her stories about her upcoming grade before school starts.

    12. The second Betsy book that my Betsy and I read. We have a beautiful old hard cover, not this silly paperback version. Second grade.

    13. Eh, it was okay. It is an older children's book about a couple of kids in the second grade. It was decent, but not outstanding.
