Understood Betsey is a delightful story about a timid girl, dependent on her aunts, who is transformed into someone of character, strength, and ability. Betsey learns solid moral lessons, often through humorous mishaps, that readers of any age would do well to remember. She learns that doing something good only for the praise you get, is not the best motivation. She also learns to think and care about others.
The author's attachment to the Montessori style of education is quite apparent in her portrayal of Betsey's schooling. She promotes learning at one's own pace and points out that learning to live is more important than learning how to pass a paper examination.
In summary, this is a good, wholesome book with warm characters. The author weaves a tale which will both amuse her readers and cause them to stop and think.
