Read full description of the books:
Oh, I just loved this. The story (via illustrations) starts even before the title page, which was a fun touch.
This is the story of two Amish sisters (and Polacco did her research about the Amish) who find an exotic egg and put it in the nest of one of their chickens in order to have it hatch. Naomi, the older sister, just once wants something fancy, being tired of having everything plain, as in the Amish tradition. The story is funny and sweet.
The only quibble I have with this story is that I can’t believe girls of this age, growing up in the Amish community, would not already know what the word shun meant.
This is another winner by Polacco, and I especially enjoyed it because it’s a bit different from many of her books. The illustrations are terrific, as is usual for Polacco. The two-page spread with the hatched bird, even though I knew what was coming (not all children will know what to expect) was particularly beautiful, and I liked the depiction of these Amish people and their community; the expressions on the faces of the little girls are wonderful.
I’ve always been interested in the Amish and this is a terrific book for introducing their culture to young children.
