A funny introduction to pioneer life, perfect for classrooms and homeschoolers

The Golly Sisters are heading west. They’ve got new dresses and the best show on either side of the Mississippi. But can they keep their act together long enough to get this show on the road? Find out in this hilarious tale of the old west!

The Golly Sisters Go West by Newbery medalist Betsy Byars is a Level Three I Can Read, which means it contains a complex plot and challenging vocabulary—just right for the newly independent reader.

As Carol Hurst's BooksInTheClassroom site comments: "Byars has the ability to construct believable, often loveable characters who face some of life's greatest hurdles. Her humor is visible everywhere as is her empathy with the difficulties faced by many children. She writes for many ages and her easy to read books are wonderful fare."

This book is a riot! A great book about singing sisters with a spirit for adventure. 'The Golly Sisters Go West' will crack up kids and adults alike with its funny, good-hearted storyline. Like the other reviewer listed, I remember this story from my childhood, and I remember my mother laughing as much as I did! Very funny!

I learned to read by this book and I remember many nights listening to my mother read to my sister and I. We laughed so much! I am 23 now and laugh every time I think of May-May and Rose. It is wonderful book with a delightful story and hilarious pictures! Highly recommended!
