Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

... and your kids Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge during the month of October ...

and in case you hadn't heard, the Betsy-Tacy high school are republished as of today, bound as two books so you get two books for the price of one!

Heaven to Betsy/Betsy in Spite of Herself
Betsy was a Junior/Betsy and Joe
Betsy and the Great World/Betsy's Wedding

These are wonderful coming of age books that rely strongly on family -- each book is a year of high school, then her "grand tour" and then her wedding. Wonderful to read or read-aloud!

Thank you for posting this Mary. I love her books! I own old copies of those six original books from when I was a teacher in MN.

I too highly recommend them!
