Then an emergency occurs, and the fearful little girl is temporarily sent to other relatives who live on a farm in Vermont. When her uncle Henry nonchalantly hands her the buggy reins for the ride from the train station, the newly named Betsy realizes that that this new family expects her to think for herself.
Dorothy Canfield Fisher was an early advocate of Maria Montessori's educational theory of learning by doing, and her heroine flourishes as she becomes aware of and interested in the world around her and discovers how truly capable she is.

Great reminder that children are capable
This was a very good book for me to listen to. It is a strong reminder that children should have the opportunity to struggle, grow and gain a sense of self confidence as they realize that they can do hard things.

Heartwarming story. Helicopter parents: take note!
Interesting story telling. The human spirit does find a way to succeed! I loved each character for different reasons. Great listen.
