Bubblegum Betty is a charming little book written by Jane Elizabeth Martin. Jane is the daughter of the main character, Bubblegum Betty. She recounts Betty’s childhood days in an endearing and interesting way!
The book starts out with Betty’s birth in the chapter titled “Born With A Bang”, travels through her childhood escapades with her siblings, meanders through her schoolroom days and on into her courtship.
This would be a great book to read aloud to your children or grandchildren! It is only 46 pages long and divided into six chapters, so it doesn’t take long to read – but is a delightful collection of stories that will show your children what life was like during the Depression years.
Backcover: Bubblegum Betty is the true story of young Mennonite girl growing up during the Great Depression. Hear about her childhood adventures like cutting off just one of her braids, eating soap and walking in her sleep. Growing up with a large family and a special needs brother kept her life interesting. Also, enjoy Betty’s advice and just a few favorite recipes and family photos.
Bubblegum Betty isn’t all stories! It also contains these extras:
- Betty Today
- Advice from Betty
- Delicious recipes from Bubblegum Betty
