Reading to Know Book Club. I find her somewhat autobiographical writing to be entertaining and fun, while learning a bit of life and culture in Deep Valley, Minnesota in the early 1900's.
The Betsy-Tacy series is most well-known. This series begins with five year olds Betsy and Tacy who quickly become great friends. Early in the series, the books are written simply, for a young audience. As the series progresses, Betsy and Tacy grow up, as does the content and writing style. Betsy is a bit boy crazy in high school, but because it is nearly one hundred years ago, it is still quite tame. The reader gets to watch Betsy grow up and marry in Betsy's Wedding, the final book of the series. As you might guess, readers of all ages can enjoy the writing of Maud Hart Lovelace.

Thanks, Annette, for hosting this month! I know I, for one, am looking forward to this month.
So, who is with us and Lovelace?!
