I still have my copy of this book, which actually belonged to my mother as a child. As you'd expect it's a fairly old hardcover book. I loved Betsy's Little Star and read it many times, including the times my mom read it to me. It was published in 1950, and as a child of the early 1980's there were many things about the time period that intrigued and enchanted me. It only enhanced my love of red shoes. Until recently, I didn't know there were any other books featuring these characters and to date this is the only one I've read that I know of, but I loved it.

Shannon I have now read this book to my daughter Guinevere at 3 years old. She loved it, and really grabbed onto the ideas about Star going to kindergarten. It was a great read-aloud experience.
