Summary

A heartwarming tale of two Amish sisters whose simple life in the country isn’t always so simple—from “a gifted writer” (Publishers Weekly). 
 
The author of Little Amish Lizzie returns with a new story of the Glick family, in which Lizzie is now eight years old and just as spunky, sensitive, and mischievous as ever. It feels like her big sister Emma is just the opposite—she is sweet, respectful, and good at just about everything that Lizzie isn’t, not to mention pretty. Lizzie likes being the kind of girl who loves hiding for hours to read a good book and racing down too-steep hills on her sled and eating lots of doughnuts—she just wishes she could make herself walk instead of running once in a while so she wouldn’t get in trouble at school. 
 
Times are hard for the Glick family—Dat’s business is still not doing well and his cheerful optimism is beginning to wear thin. Lizzie and Emma are young, but they begin to understand that Dat and Mam don’t have enough money and their family might be in trouble. Will the sisters be able to put aside their differences to support each other through their family’s financial struggles, tragedy in their community, and yet more changes?  
 
This second book in the Buggy Spoke series, which follows Lizzie through her younger years as she struggles to mesh her hot temper and willful ways with her Amish faith, is a delightful account of another way of life, filled with vivid descriptions of Amish food, farms, and traditions—an enjoyable adventure for young readers as well as a fun prequel for fans of the author’s bestselling Lizzie Searches for Love trilogy.

    Originally published between 1927 and 1958, the 26 classic books about Freddy the Pig are now going on to delight a sixth generation of children. Freddy the Pig, the “Renaissance Pig” (The New York Times Book Review) of Bean Farm, is back to thrill his fans of all ages in facsimile editions of these all-American children’s classics. In Freddy Goes Camping, Mr. Camphor’s aunts, Minerva and Elmira, are staying with him, much to his disgust. “There’s two kinds of aunts,” he says. “There’s the regular kind, and then there’s the other kind. Mine are the other kind.” He enlists Freddy’s aid in an attempt to rid his house of the ladies, with the result that Freddy and his chums become entangled with some extremely unfriendly ghosts in an abandoned summer hotel. Freddy camps out, goes canoeing, and tosses flapjacks like a pro when he’s not mixing it up with the eerie Mr. Eha . . .

    "The Varieties of Religious Experience is a generous and endlessly insightful book about human nature." — The New York Times
    
    "The most notable of all books in the field of the psychology of religion and probably destined to be the most influential book written on religion in the 20th century." — Psychology today
    
    
    Published in 1902 and quickly established itself as a classic, this book is a work that opens a new era of thinking. The study made by William James brings us a new definition of the word Religion which "shall mean for us the feelings, acts, and experiences of individual men in their solitude, so far as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatever they may consider the divine." Therefore, a religious experience appears to be a subjective experience which is interpreted within a religious framework.
    
    This book is fully annotated by the author (more than 300 footnotes) and contains a short biography.
