Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—Eleven-year-old Rachel Yoder's summer is not going as planned in this volume (Barbour, 2008) by Wanda E. Brunstetter. Her family's barn burned down and their Amish community is pulling together to rebuild it. Rachel wants to help, but all anyone will let her do is haul water and make sandwiches. Meanwhile, her grandfather finally opens his greenhouse for business. Rachel can hardly wait to work there, but must help out in the house and at the family's roadside stand first. Worst of all, Rachel's mother is expecting a baby and Rachel is not at all sure she wants to be a big sister. When the baby is born on Rachel's birthday, she's more upset than ever and believes that everyone has forgotten her. When an English girl who she meets at the farmer's market invites her to join her and her brother on a trip to an amusement park, Rachel jumps at the opportunity without asking permission. There is clearly a message here, but the engaging story, light humor, and interesting characters keep it from feeling heavy-handed. Rachel's Amish faith and culture is respectfully presented and is a key element throughout the story. Ellen Grafton does a solid job of giving voice to Rachel and the other characters, and she clearly portrays the girl's angst. While this may not have broad appeal, it is a solid choice for listeners looking for a mild story with a touch of fun and likeable characters.—Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT

    Rachel is back again.here comes trouble.
    Wanda E. Brunstetter does it again. Just Plain Foolishness is the continuing story of Rachel Yoder, an Amish pre-teen. This is book 6 in the series.
    Rachel has a new little sister, and she is feeling just a little jealous and left out. It seems she's always in the way. She and some of her English friends decide to go to an amusement park. Rachel does not ask permission. Her family is frantic with worry. When Rachel is around, trouble is not far away.
    I love this series. I always know that I can give them to a child to read without worrying about the content. Wanda E. Brunstetter allows readers a glimpse into the Amish lifestyle. Regardless of the culture, girls face the same emotions. They want to be loved, and when a new baby is around, they often feel left out.
