Reviews

"Children will enjoy the simple, satisfying tale, set in the old-fashioned Amish milieu, and fans of the highly acclaimed artist Moss will appreciate her inimitable trademark style." - Booklist "An uplifting story about Amish life. The family in this book returns kindness and generosity to the anonymous thief, thereby introducing children to (and reminding adults of) the idea of turning the other cheek. "The story and delicate illustrations will engage young readers and introduce them to the Amish ways of gentleness, solidarity, and distrust of modern lifestyles. 'Reuben' breathes freshness into the search for cultural diversity in children's literature." - Cleveland Plain Dealer "Braving the taunts of his sister, Reuben helps sew the quilt his family is making to sell at an auction in Reuben and the Quilt. When the quilt is stolen, the family's act of forgiveness and generosity brings it back." - Publishers Weekly "How does the family respond when the colorful quilt disappears from their porch? The author skillfully weaves in the core values of peace and forgiveness as the family contemplates ways to solve the quilt problem." - Reunion "Simple and gentle, this story gives readers a glimpse of Amish life. Moss's charming folk-art watercolors depict scenes of Lancaster, PA. The colors are those of Amish quilts, with touches of black, teal, purple, and red appearing throughout." - School Library Journal
