Children's Picture Books
A favorite book with lovely illustrations sharing life that is mostly unknown today.
Which Hat is That - Anna Hines
A cute story with flaps loved by my three year old.
Eliza and the Dragonfly - Susie Caldwell Rinehart
Learn facts about the dragonfly lifecycle along with Eliza and her aunt.
A longer picture book covering several centuries and several continents. Follows the travels of Mennonites from Prussia to Russia to Kansas and how they introduced Turkey Red wheat to the US. Excellent story.
Children's Chapter Books
Just David - Eleanor H. Porter
From the author of Pollyanna, a tale of an unusual boy and how he changed a community. We listened to this book on audio and I was snuffling by the end.
A young girl and the true story of her sacrifice to own a copy of the Bible. A great book to introduce to my children the fact that many people in the world do not own their own Bible.
Elin's Amerika - Marguerite de Angeli
Another excellent book by de Angeli sharing the story of the first settlers to Pennsylvania - the Swedish.
Hidden Riches - Romaine Stauffer
Learn of the sacrifices made for the Mennonites to come to Pennslvania in the 1750's through the story of Christian Brubaker. My children loved this story- and even I learned a lot about the time period.
I think this wins the honor of the best book on women and marriage. Fugate doesn't hold back in sharing what the Lord requires for a wife. Excellent.
This cookbook is just the kind I like with basic recipes, great photos, it was even fun to read, though I didn't appreciate some of her language. And the recipes I tried were winners!
