Publisher's Summary

Betsy hopes that whoever moves into the house across the street will have a little girl just her age. And the little girl who moves in is just her age. Her name is Tacy. She is very bashful, but she likes to listen to Betsy's stories: wonderful stories that the girls love, and that they keep as their own special secret.

After a while, it's hard to remember a time when Betsy and Tacy weren't best friends.

    "A winner"
    Would you listen to Betsy-Tacy again? Why?

    Yes, my 4 year old granddaughter and I have listened to the book over and over again, as we drive back and forth from her house to mine.


    What other book might you compare Betsy-Tacy to and why?

    This book is incomparable. A classic


    What does Sutton Foster bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a musical voice, very clear and pleasing to the ear. Much of the pleasure of listening is her perfect intonation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, one chapter at a time is usually best for a four year old.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this book teaches children very quietly and indirectly about what it means to have an imagination and about the ways that children can entertain themselves without many toys or outside forms of entertainment.

    "Wonderful narration of a classic children's story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Children have loved the Betsy-Tacy series for decades. I had heard of the books but somehow never read any of them as a child. I checked the first book out of the library for my daughters and we all fell in love with the series. They were very excited to discover the audiobook version. Sutton Foster is the perfect narrator for this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the publishers are planning audiobook versions of the rest of the Betsy-Tacy series, hopefully with Sutton Foster narrating again.
