Your kids will love this delightfully written and beautifully illustrated storybook about a young Amish boy named Solomon Lapp and his sister Sara. Growing up amid the beautiful rolling hills of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the children encounter everything from dark, dancing shadows to loose chickens, quilt-eating goats, and mischief-making siblings. From one adventure to another in twelve intriguing chapters, Solomon and his friends learn life lessons about courage, brotherly love, helping, obedience, kindness, and more. This enchanting storybook will not only entertain but inspire, teaching your children Christian values and the wisdom of God.
Wandas ancestors were part of the Anabaptist faith, and her novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Her books are well-read and trusted by many Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.
When Wanda visits her Amish friends, she finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties. Wanda enjoys photography, ventriloquism, gardening, bird-watching, beachcombing, and spending time with her family. She and her husband, Richard, have been blessed with two grown children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

This book was in one of our "surprise box" orders. This is really one of the first chapter books my 7-yr-old has read and he is eating it up! Each story has made him laugh, and he loves all of the pictures as he is reading. Now he wants the next one. (I hope this is a series!) Slightly smaller in size, but fatter than your typical easy chapter books.
