Father's Funny Dream Thanksgiving was hardly over when the children in the third grade began talking about Christmas. The children were soon busy drawing what they called Christmas presents. They made them on large sheets of paper with colored crayons. With scissors they cut around the edges of the presents. When they were all finished, there were horns and drums, balls and tops and blocks. Some of the little girls had drawn dolls.

My 5 year-old granddaughter loved listening to me read this book to her and I loved the nostalgia of a bygone era. The characters are charming, and the whole series of books is great! We have gone on to read nearly all of the Betsy books. They are all sweet and innocent. Love them all!!

From my nine year old: I like that it has a chapter at the end of the book that's the next book and the chapter is funny. I liked that they had a chick and they thought it was a chicken and it turned out it was a rooster! And it's fun because she's my age!!

Fabulous, eternally enjoyable book with homely stories about young kids, written by the inimitable Carolyn Haywood. My 7 year old granddaughter loves it, and so did I when I was that age. A thoroughly entertaining book for children written with real literary excellence.

Betsy is back in the third installment in the Betsy series. She is now in the third grade, and is very sorry to hear that Miss Grey, her beloved first and second grade teacher, is leaving her teaching position to get married. Her disappointment turns to joy, however, when she discovers that her new next door neighbor is an old friend.

Once again, Ellen and Billy play a prominent role in Betsy's adventures. Betsy and Ellen are flower girls in Miss Grey's wedding, and all three children collaborate to buy Miss Grey a present. When Thumpy is accidentally trapped in the attic next door, Billy falls into a barrel of whitewash while trying to rescue him.

Mr. Kilpatrick, the police officer from the first two books, also has his part to play. After Thumpy dirties Betsy's dress before the wedding, Mr. Kilpatrick helps Betsy's father get the soiled garment to the cleaners before it closes. Mr. Kilpatrick also assists Betsy's classmates by delivering a wandering dog and tantrum prone little brother to their homes, and plays Santa Claus for Betsy and her friends during a sleighing party.

Despite the title, only two chapters take place in Betsy's classroom. The new teacher, Miss Ross, is introduced, and the children study Mexico. Billy brings an Easter chick to school, and everyone is surprised when "Daisy" grows to be a rooster.

One episode betrays the book's 1943 publication date. Betsy wishes for a black sibling, then asks her parents to adopt a lost black two year old that she finds. It is seems unlikely that an eight year old could be so naive, but children were probably less sophisticated over sixty years ago.

This book is a fine addition to the Betsy series, and is a perfect early chapter book for young readers.

Back to School with Betsy is all about Betsy and her third grade year. Things aren't going like Betsy thinks they should. Her favorite teacher has left. Before too long the new teacher turns out to be great too. The students have a great year and learn a lot. Betsy's friends are back as well and you never know what they will be up to next.

The book is full of good old fashion fun. No violence or bad words are found in this book. Kids respect the adults as well.

I would recommend this book to kids who are just starting out with chapter books. The chapters are not too long and not too short.

Mrs Grey is getting married! what kind of wedding present do you think Betsy,Billy and Ellen come up with? What is the gum for?
Do fish have swimsuits? And Why does'nt this hen lay eggs? Well you don't have to sit there and mope c'mon go to the library or bookstore... and you know what to do!!!!!!
Although these books were written in the last century, they still resonate with children today. Think of it as grandparent opening the treasure trove of stories for her grandchildren. That is the essence of many of Haywood's books.
