A fascinating look at the world of the Amish people through the eyes of a young Amish girl growing to adulthood. Through Ellie's experiences, including a runaway buggy ride, her baptism Sunday, a death in her family, and her own special wedding day, readers get a real-life picture of the Amish lifestyle.
"In many ways, ten-year-old Ellie is like any child--she wishes for more play time for play and less school time. But Ellie is also unique. As the eldest child in an Old Order Amish home, her life is filled with rules and responsibilities, family and fun. This authentic series, written by Amish-raised Mary Christner Borntrager, has much to offer readers about the ups and downs of growing up Plain. A great choice for a family read-aloud."
