Synopsis: Describes the crafts of Pennsylvania Dutch living in a rural atmosphere. Includes making quilts, pottery, and tin and tole ware.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-9 This colorful book lovingly introduces children to the craftsmen and farmers who make up that still vital immigrant group, the Pennsylvania Dutch. Most books in print for middle school readers focus on the Amish population, but Costabel takes a broader view and writes about the "Deutsch" religious settlers together. This is useful, but perhaps doesn't credit the diversity of Mennonites, Moravians, Quakers, and others as much as it should. Additionally, the continued use of the past tense with the book's frankly admiring tone may give children the false impression that these admirable people no longer exist. However, these are quibbles. Drawings in the distinctive Pennsylvania Dutch folk art style provide wonderful eye appeal. Chapters follow one another as orderly as an Amish farmer's fields. It would be easy and interesting for a school child to report on scissor-cutting, the Kentucky rifle, or the Conestoga wagon, all of which are among the many contributions of the Pennsylvania Dutch to American culture. Browsers, tourists, and art students will enjoy this attractive book also. The book is indexed, and it contains an undated bibliography of references which the author has apparently used. It also has a partial list of American folk art collections. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, Va.
