I had "This is Betsy" as a little girl and loved it. She's a sweet little girl who looks like me and does silly things like put her pants on her head. Gunilla Wolde wrote lots of books and my Dad has been finding them for me to add to my collection.
Betsy gathers up some broken things and decides to have a fixing day. She carefully does all of the work that needs to be done, and then helps baby brother, who smashes his finger with the hammer while Betsy is not paying attention.
See how she lays out the paper so she doesn't make a mess? I love Betsy.
This is my kind of book. Simple, sweet, hard work, happy ending.
