This is a sequential series and is best read in order.

The Betsy and Tacy books follow a classic female friendship through the years and the volumes age up with the reader. We are able to follow the girls from a fifth birthday through the years into married life. Set in Minnesota and based largely on Maud Hart Lovelace's personal journals, these semi-autobiographical stories have been well loved by girls for over eighty years. The first four volumes are meant for children while the later volumes have a target audience of ages 14+ with more mature themes.
