Jenny,

I loved reading about what you read and this meme. Thanks so much for doing it because it really gave me insight into you.

Was the Betsy book Understood Betsy? Something like that? The author of that book, Elisabeth Lansing, was my teacher when I took a writing course for writing for children.
