    1. This book uses skillfully compared the immigrant Jews during the first part of the 19th century and the Amish. The author shows both the similarities and differences that these two groups of people have. It also shows how friendships can be developed between people of different backgrounds. Gideon and Isaac find ways to help each other and develop a bond as they are faced with challenging situations.

    2. I had to read this for school (in 7th grade) and although I learned a lot about the amish culture and way of life, I felt the book was more of a history textbook than an entertaining novel. So I though it was okay

    3. Great lessons about tolerance and informative about other cultures. I'll be interested to see how well the students respond to it. Especially since it's our interdisciplinary unit.
