1. I actually linked up at last! — though my post is too long. :-/ That’s what happens when you don’t talk about your read-alouds for awhile — pent up energy!

    This sounds like an interesting story, and I like the questions you raise. We tried reading Betsy-Tacy a few years ago, and for some reason my youngest reacted very negatively. Maybe it’s time to try again.

    Thanks for hosting this. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  2. Oh, I love Maud Hart Lovelace. I’ve never heard about this one. My boys will listen to a lot of “girly” stories and like them but Betsy-Tacy was one that they didn’t really like. I’m anxiously waiting for “Ruth” to be old enough to share them with.

  3. Happy Valentine’s Day to you also! I hadn’t heard of this one. Which is no great surprise sine I really haven’t spent any time with Lovelace beyond the Betsy-Tacy books. I’m rather interested in rectifying that situation. This one does sound cute!

  4. I’m glad you were able to find it and enjoy it. 🙂 We picked up the Story of Valentines book by Bulla at the library on Wednesday and read it as a bedtime story on Valentines night. I liked it. I think it’s one I might consider buying just to get it out and easily read it again from year to year for Valentines. I still need to finish my RAT post for this week…I started it but I was just too tired on Thursday night after our busy day to complete it.
