Amish

Written by Cheryl Benner

What is Christmas like among the “plain” folk of Pennsylvania?  Although there’s no electricity and few modern devices, the holiday season is filled with fun, friendship and giving.

Did you know that students from the Amish schoolhouse are called “scholars”.  Find out if they exchange presents.  How they thank their teacher and postman at the holiday times?  What is a taffy pull – and does it sound like fun?  Nicely written and illustrated in black and white, each page allows a child to not only read about this community but also color and explore the pictures and images.

This is a simple and beautiful book – as much fun to read as it is to color!  Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in simpler holidays or getting back to “the reason for the season.”
