Review

New York Times Book Review"

Understood Betsy is as satisfying in its evocation of an earlier, simpler way of life as Laura Ingalls Wilder s Little House books, and psychologically more acute. Fisher is a master of presenting, in a low-key, humorous way, a New Englandy way of doing and saying things . . . Understood Betsy is sure to delight a new generation of very busy, over-scheduled children whose own chances for early independence and initiative are limited. It may even teach their parents a thing or two about the best way to raise a child. The New York Times Book Review"
