    Simple, informative, interesting

    What a delightful little book. I've often been interested in the Amish but found the other nonfiction books had too much information. I wanted to know the basics and it was tough to draw those out of the abundance of information. This was an easy, quick, and fun read.

    Easy to Understand

    When I read this book, I now understand what the language means for the Amish. It was a book just the size for my purse, so I carried it everywhere. I really enjoyed it. Thanks - Amish Life - francisLF
