From Booklist

Ages 5-8. One beautiful fall morning, an Amish family leaves its farmhouse on Buttermilk Lane and rides its horse-drawn buggy into the village to spend the day. Mitchell details the day's events in a respectful manner that delights in what the Amish have to offer. First stop is Zimmermans general store, where Mam buys frizzed beef and pudding meat and Dat picks out socks and suspenders. Next is Zooks Dry Goods; then Bird-in-Hand, the Farmers Market, and finally Dawdi and Mammi's for a home-cooked meal of chicken pot pie and "apple dumplings for sweet." After much socializing and with leftovers in hand, the family heads home, past other images of Amish life. Sandford's oil paintings capture a warm autumn sun shining on the brilliant colors of Pennsylvania Dutch country, and they celebrate the essentially peaceful, family-oriented Amish culture. Kathryn Broderick --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
The artwork in this book is breath taking. It is set in fall and the paintings are stunning. I was looking for a book that explains a little about PA Dutch/Amish life, and this book just exemplifies it, it doesn't explain it. They use some scattered PA Dutch sayings and words, and it walks you through a typical, ?non-farming? day. The family takes their horse and buggy to go shopping at the general store, they visit a friend at the farmers' market, and have dinner. At night, the cows still need milking. It's a nice gentle story, but I would love to know why there is a very prominent car displayed in one of the paintings, on an Amish farm??? My son wanted to know why, and I couldn't explain it. This is a nice gentle story about the PA Dutch way of life.

If you enjoy giving your children beautifully illustrated books with delightful, entertaining and informative content, this is a wonderful addition to your child's library.
"Down Buttermilk Lane" is a great way to introduce your child to the Amish way of life. Through it's colorful pictures and colloquial writing, it transports you to Buttermilk Lane, a road that really exists.
My son loves riding in the car and leafing through the pictures as we pass Zimmerman's store, the Ebersol Chair Shop,and many beautiful farms in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
A beautiful book in every way.

Down Buttermilk Lane is a book tells the story of Mam Dat, Rachel, Becky, and Jacod as they journey into town from their country home. In this book you almost feel the wind in your face, hear the clip-clop of the horses hooves, and see the beautiful fields as the family makes their way to town. It is just like being with them on this lovely fall day.

I really like this book because the illustrations are vivid and the story is well written. It reminds me of special times with my family. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories about families.

This was an adorable Amish story, geared towards kids in K-2nd grade. My kids were fascinated and wanted more Amish books. It's a keeper!
