Item Description...
Overview
Theirs is a world of mystery, a place apart. Where children dress like miniature adults, where they speak Pennsylvania Dutch before English (which they usually learn in first grade), where they are entrusted with fieldwork and kitchen duty before they leave elementary school, where they nearly always share three meals a day with their parents and siblings (except lunch during the school year). These are children who grow up without television, computers, or telephones. But they know their grandparents intimately; the boys can harness a horse and take their part in the twice-daily milking operation; the girls can quilt, bake bread from scratch, and look after their preschooler sisters and brothers. What is it like to be an Amish child? With unforgettable photographs, Jerry Irwin shows moments within the Amish community. Children overlooking the barnraising, scholars (as the Amish refer to their elementary-school-aged students) conferring with their teacher, Datt (Pennsylvania Dutch for Dad) leading a fishing expedition of youngsters, sisters hosing down the buggy, a family at the school picnic, a sister and brother pitching watermelons to Mamm (Pennsylvania Dutch for Mom).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautiful 'Coffee Table' Book  Aug 9, 2005
The photos in this book are timeless! Having recently visited the Amish in Pennsylvania, my family are now interested in all aspects of Amish culture and life. The book is beautifully laid out and captures the exact emotions we experienced whilst there. Highly recommended for the Amish collector.
 
A wonderfully presented photo display  Jan 17, 2001
This wonderfully presented photo display of Amish children captures what it's like to live in an Amish world where English is a second language in America, where there are no modern technological devices, and where family ties are unusually strong. Beautiful color photos capture the Amish child's world.
 
COFFEE TABLE BOOK ON THE AMISH  Nov 10, 2000
It's ironic that readers are attracted to pictorial books on the Amish, considering that sect's well known aversion to being photographed. Amish children are a particularly attractive subject. This is a beautifully produced book, mostly depicting the Lancaster County Amish, photographed by a transplanted Lancaster resident who has earned the trust of the community. This book is recommended for all readers interested in the Amish - particularly for the many people who visit Lancaster County each year.
