Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill

Edit: oops, the links were bad. I’ve fixed ’em. :)

I think this one took me about a year. The last time I posted a new “Kayray Reads to You” recording was September 2015. Oof. It’s been a hard year.

Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill: the third book in the Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace. The series is based on the author’s life; her family and friends have been renamed, but they really were just like the the people in the books! In this book, Betsy, Tacy, and Tib all turn ten years old, and they’re obsessed with Kings and Queens.

    There is great rejoicing at our house at this news! Actually, I just put the kids to bed and casually checked the blog for updates and had to run downstairs to tell everyone the good news that we’ll be listening to the Big Hill tomorrow morning when we get up! My girls have listened to your first two Betsy-Tacy recordings dozens upon dozens of times, and our Betsy-Tacy treasury (of the first four books) is worn to tatters and falling apart from all the reading along it’s gotten. Hurray for another Betsy-Tacy book to listen to and enjoy. You are an integral part of our homeschool day, so thank you, thank you, thank you for reading aloud to us!

    Wow! I’m glad Betsy, Tacy, and Tib are so beloved in your house :) You’ve inspired me to start the next book as soon as I possible can!

    We are so grateful for the next book as well. Thank you for your lovely reading. We listen to all your stories over and over again. You’re our constant companion on car rides and at bedtime.

    Hey, Kara! We love your readings, and wanted you to know we plan to feature all three of your Betsy-Tacy audiobooks on our site next week. Hope it brings you lots of new listeners and fans. Take care!

    I am so excited to find these! I’m a Librivox addict and have heard you read on Librivox, Emma, I think. I didn’t check your list of recordings because I am so excited to find Betsy, Tacy, and Tib on here!! I devoured these books as a little girl and plan to collect them for (hopefully) grandchildren. Thank you for all your hard work recording!

    Hi Ellen! I’m so glad you’re pleased. I love Betsy-Tacy so much! All of the Betsy-Tacy books have been reprinted in lovely paperback editions recently so you should snap them up for your grandchildren before they go out of print again.

    Please keep in mind that my Betsy-Tacy recordings are NOT librivox recordings — the books are not in the public domain yet, so they very are casual, unedited, friendly recordings meant for personal use only :) Happy listening!

    Wow! What a find! We are delighted to find your site. I love reading to my children, but days like today, where they are sick and laying down all day, I am sure thankful for other readers who can take a turn and read good quality literature to my precious children. You are a great reader. Thank you SO much for sharing all this for free!

    Aww, I’m so glad you found me. Give the little ones a get-well kiss from me :)

    Hi Kara,

    You bring so much joy to families. I have two sweet girls (ages 4 and 8). We have enjoyed listening to you read the Betsy Tacy series. We also loved hearing you read to us Heidi. Thank you for making these stories come to life for us.
