Catch a glimpse of pre-Civil War Quaker life as Hannah and her family go to Meeting and to market, host a gathering of Friends, enjoy ice skating and other pastimes. Nine-year-old Hannah keeps getting into scrapes. She finds it so hard to wear a plain bonnet that pinches her ears, and a plain dress with no lace! Hannah yearns for the flowered bonnets and hoop skirts her friend Cecily wears, and often sneaks away to 'dress up.' Will Hannah ever understand the value of plain dress and learn to be contented as a Friend. Find out in this picture storybook for young readers. Recommended for ages 7 to 11.
