Item Description...
Overview
A total life change. That's what Elizabeth Ann gets when she goes to visit her Vermont relatives, the Putneys. First of all, they call her Betsy, instead of Elizabeth Ann. But they don't just change her name. They change her whole life. Things she has never done before, she is suddenly expected to do-things like driving a wagon, taking care of kittens, and doing her own hair. At first Betsy doesn't know what to think. And then she realizes that life on the Putney farm is much more exciting than life in the prim old city house.

If you like The Secret Garden...  Mar 6, 2010

... you will like this story.

There were a few very small typos and the illustrations did not show up - which was kind of disappointing.

I really, really enjoyed this book! If you like The Secret Garden or The Little Princess you will like Understood Betsy also. It is novella length. A perfect read to pick up in between some heavy books.

I giggled. I cried. Sweet, sweet book.
 
So glad to see this book!  Sep 5, 2009
Having just viewed a BBC list of 100 books everyone should read, I saw a couple of my childhood favorites, but not "Understood Betsy." I still have my copy and reread it periodically (and I am 70 years old). I wondered if it was still in print and am delighted to see it is available. I recommend it highly for any young girl. P.S. DON'T get the abridged version. You won't want to miss a single word.
 
An excellent book on parenting  Aug 10, 2009
Having never read the book as a child, I don't know how kids will like it, although it has a very similar feel to books like the Betsy-Tacy series that I loved growing up. However, as an adult, I highly recommend the book for anyone who wants a good look at how to teach your kids by example and how to respond to their interests.

Tons of good values without being horribly preachy.
 
One of my favorite children's books....  Feb 23, 2009
Elizabeth has spent the first nine years of her life being coddled by her aunt and grandmother in the name of "understanding" her. She's heard the horror stories about her cousins in Vermont who make children do dreadful things called "chores." Then circumstances require Elizabeth to go live with those cousins, and she is terrified. Gradually, Elizabeth, who comes to be known as Betsy, grows physically, becoming hale and hearty, but also in maturity, largely because of her cousins' "common sense" approach to child-rearing. The nine-year-old who had never lifted a finger to do anything for herself that anyone else could do for her, much less done anything for someone else, becomes responsible and helpful. The girl who was once afraid of her shadow becomes confident and, when necessary, brave. The girl who mechanically repeated whatever she was taught in school learns to think and make applications on her own.

There is a definite moral to this story. There are great lessons about hard work, self sufficiency, kindness to others, respect for elders, etc, but it's also a very enjoyable read. There is a wonderful sense of humor woven throughout the story even in the matter-of-fact tone with which the story is told. I've read this aloud to my older two children, ages 7 and 5, (with some explanations along the way) and they greatly enjoyed it, as did my husband who heard about half of it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those with children.
 
AWESOME!  Aug 27, 2008
This book was a joy to read. My daughter read it to her 3 oldest daughter's, a chapter at a time. They could hardly wait for "reading time" and begged for more at the end of each chapter. The life lesson in this book is so valuable. I am pleased that I have my own personal copy.
