    My Favorite Book!

    I love to read, and have read MANY, but this is my favorite! I read it over and over, as a girl, and then read it aloud to my husband and children, several times. Now, the kids are grown and married, and I'm about to read it, again, as my new daughter-in-law has never heard it! Sure, I could let her read it, herself, but this is an excuse for me to live in Betsy's world, once more! When I get to the chapter in which Betsy learns she must soon leave the farm, I cry, every time, though I try bravely not to! I feel that that says something for the author, Dorothy Canfield. She makes her stories truly live! I hope my kids will pass this story on to generations to come, as it is timeless, educational, and heartwarming.

    Read It!

    This book is a great book for girls! Boys may not like it because it is not exciting!Betsy learns to think for herself and to be brave. When she is 8 she is sent to live with her horrible coisins out in the country.Well when she gets there she finds out that they are not horrible at all!And.....well you will have to read it to find out. Its a great book, read it!

    A childhood favorite.

    This is a story of a young girl growing up and learning self reliance all wrapped up in a very enjoyable story. I was given this book when I was ten years old and it became one of my favorite books of all time. I purchased this copy for a great-niece.

    Sweet and charming.

    An old family favorite - I was glad to find it in a form that could go on my Nook. A few typos, but nothing really annoying. . .

    Great book!

    This was a childhood favorite of mine. I always disappeared into the story, and I liked this old-fashioned picture of Vermont farm life. A child reading this gets a glimpse into a world that has disappeared.
