Mennonite Central Committee

paperback, 102 pages, $17.95|
|"Thee, Hannah!" scold Mother, Grammy Welsh, and sister Sally as
Hannah struggles to grow up as a good Quaker girl in Philadelphia just
before the Civil War. It seems that nine-year-old Hannah is always
getting into scrapes. She doesn't want to listen to "old Spotty," but
it's so hard to wear a plain bonnet that pinches her ears, and a plain
dress with no lace! Hannah yearns for the flowered bonnets ad hoop
skirts her friend Cecily wears, and often sneaks away to "dress up."
Catch a glimpse of Quaker life as Hannah and her family go to
Meeting and to market, host a gathering of Friends, enjoy ice skating
and other pastimes. Join Hannah as she helps bring an escaped slave
woman and her sick son to safety. Will Hannah ever understand the
value of plain dress, and learn to be contented as a Friend? Find out
in the picture storybook for young readers.
