An Amish family, traveling by buggy, spends a day doing errands in the village, visiting, and returning home in time for supper
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Ages 5-8. One beautiful fall morning, an Amish family leaves its farmhouse on Buttermilk Lane and rides its horse-drawn buggy into the village to spend the day. Mitchell details the day's events in a respectful manner that delights in what the Amish have to offer. First stop is Zimmermans general store, where Mam buys frizzed beef and pudding meat and Dat picks out socks and suspenders. Next is Zooks Dry Goods; then Bird-in-Hand, the Farmers Market, and finally Dawdi and Mammi's for a home-cooked meal of chicken pot pie and "apple dumplings for sweet." After much socializing and with leftovers in hand, the family heads home, past other images of Amish life. Sandford's oil paintings capture a warm autumn sun shining on the brilliant colors of Pennsylvania Dutch country, and they celebrate the essentially peaceful, family-oriented Amish culture. Kathryn BroderickReview:
"SANDFORD'S OIL PAINTINGS ... CELEBRATE THE ESSENTIALLY PEACEFUL, FAMILY-ORIENTED AMISH CULTURE."
