Betsy is scared about going to first grade, but it turns out school is a great place. She learns about tadpoles and the true meaning of Thanksgiving, makes new friends, and has more fun than she'd ever imagined.

When Teddy and Babs move to the country from the big city, they're in for a lot of good times. They become best friends with Peter and Jane, and together the four children explore country life--complete with cows and chickens, a real circus pony, and a barnyard chase with a very muddy end!

It's a new year, and Betsy has a new wish: She is going to play football on the boys' team. Of course, the boys refuse to play football with a girl. That is, until Betsy and Mr. Kilpatrick cook up a secret plan to win Betsy a spot on the team. . . .
