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

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.
This book is incomparable. A classic
She has a musical voice, very clear and pleasing to the ear. Much of the pleasure of listening is her perfect intonation.
No, one chapter at a time is usually best for a four year old.
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.
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.
I hope the publishers are planning audiobook versions of the rest of the Betsy-Tacy series, hopefully with Sutton Foster narrating again.
