Simon canít stop thinking about the pretty Amish teacher at the local one-room school. But heís ignored the sparks between them because heís so shy.

So Simonís little brother, Isaac, takes matters into his own hands. Heís determined to give his brother the best Christmas present everóa date with his favorite teacher.

Amish novelist Linda Byler brings her tender humor and skillful observation of family relationships to this holiday story. ďI love Isaacís self-confidence and scheming as he prods his reluctant older†brother,Ē she says knowingly about her characters.

Byler takes her reader straight into the Amish world as Isaac is both charmed and annoyed by his too talkative, but quite bright, Mam. He can barely tolerate his little nieces and nephews, who substantially outnumber the grown-ups when the whole family gets†together. And he loves his humble, circumspect Dat, although his father isnít always pleased by how well Isaac sweeps the forebay in the†barn.

As anticipation for the Christmas program at the schoolhouse builds, Isaac cares for troubled Ruthie who stutters miserably when she practices her poem. And he wonders how much heíll have†to help his brother Sim act on his growing affection for Teacher†Catherine!†
