Booklist Review

Ages 5-8. Narrated by the bride's younger sister, this picture-book account of an Amish wedding describes the exciting events that take place before, during, and after the special day. As the girl talks about the preparations and details of the ceremony, youngsters learn a great deal about the unique customs of the Amish people. Patrick's realistic illustrations, though sometimes a bit stiff, are nicely done, showing authentic Amish dress and capturing the simple grace and peaceful way of life of the people. Used with other resources, such as the two listed in the afterword and Ammon and Patrick's fiction picture book, An Amish Christmas (1996), this will give youngsters a wonderful sense of the Amish culture.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4-A fictionalized account of a wedding in an Amish community. The story is told by the younger sister of Anna, the bride-to-be, and follows all the activities, customs, and rituals associated with the event. The author includes a few phrases in German that add to the cultural flavor of the narrative. The realistic illustrations are colorful and attractive, with the text on the opposite page surrounded by a quilt-like design border. This informative title can be used when comparing cultures within the United States, and also when discussing wedding traditions.-Susan Knell, Pittsburgh State University, Pittsburgh, KS (c) Copyright 2010.
