    Linda Byler has written a very cute story about the younger brother matchmaking his brother, Sim, with his teacher, Catherine. Sim and Catherine seem quite stubborn and uncooperative. Will Isaac finally give up on them ever getting together or will he remain persistent to the end?

    I enjoyed seeing the one-room Amish school children preparing for their annual Christmas play and program for their families. It was very touching for Isaac to be so concerned about Ruthie and her stuttering problem. He shows a very compassionate heart...not something you always see in children that age. It was refreshing to witness the assistance he and his friends gave her.

    This is a very quick read at only 88 pages. It can easily be finished in one sitting. One thing of interest that I noticed was the women wearing a kerchief to bed at night instead of their kapp. This was done so that if the woman felt the need to pray all during the night, her head would be properly covered. Many books show the females brushing their hair out at night for their husbands and leaving it uncovered. I wonder if that differs for the various Amish districts.
