I never read Maud Hart Lovelace’s books as a kid, but I couldn’t not read them with my daughter. After all, Maud lived in our neighborhood. Before it was Mueller Park, it was where Maud lived with her husband.
We’ve passed by the rock with its plaque many times as a reluctant-to-leave-the-park last stop, and since Betsy and Tacy are four-years-old at the beginning of the first book, it seemed appropriate to introduce my daughter to Minnesota of the past with Betsy-Tacy.
I’m excited for Ladybug to meet the heroines of my youth–Anne Shirley, Laura Ingalls, and Ramona Quimby. But I’m happy that we are meeting Maud Hart Lovelace’s Betsy and Tacy together.
What childhood heroes are you excited to revisit as an adult (with kids or just for fun)?
