We downloaded this classic story in audiobook form from Librivox, and Z-baby listened to it last night and today. The narrator was Lee Ann Howlett.
What was the story about?
Well, it was about a girl named Elizabeth Ann whose parents had died, and she lived with two of her aunts and another lady. One of her aunts was middle-aged, Aunt Frances, and the other one was old. Aunt Frances and ELizabeth Ann were best buddies, and Aunt Frances basically babied her. Then her old aunt got sick, so the doctor came and said that Elizabeth Ann needed to go somewhere else. They sent her to her one of her other aunts that didn’t really like her. So she went to another aunt and uncle and cousins, the Putneys.
At first, they didn’t baby her and they acted as if she was nine years old, which she was. She thought they didn’t even care about her. But then she got used to it, and . . . well, you just have to listen to or read the rest of the story to find out what happens.
How did the story end?
You have to listen to it. I can’t tell you how it ends!
What did Betsy learn in the story?
She learned to act her age. She also learned how to cook a little and how to make butter and other stuff, too.
