Blog Tour: Amish Proverbs......GIVEAWAY!!!

Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life
Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life, by Suzanne Woods Fisher, I simply adore this little book.  The Amish live such a quiet life, I love reading Amish stories and was so excited that I was included in this blog tour.  When I received my copy of this book I was instantly charmed and sat down to read it right away.  This is a small little hardcover book full of Amish wisdom and sayings along with photos of the Amish and their surroundings.  This book shows the subtle humor that the Amish have "Don't sell a poor horse near home" or "those who have no children know the best how to raise them"....I think the Amish are very wise!!!

I have kept my copy of this little book on my coffee table, everyone who has come to my home for a visit (and this summer I've had relatives coming out of my ears!) has picked up this little book and paged through it.  This is a book that you can enjoy over and over, the pages never get old and the sayings as well as the little stories are quite meaningful.  What a wonderful, thoughtful gift this would make!

**I received 2 copies of this book from Baker Publishing Group, I was not compensated in any other way for my honest review.
