David R. Godine Publisher, Oct 1, 2002 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
2002 Dedicated to serving God, the Shakers lived simple agrarian lives in harmony with the changing seasons, content with what they could provide with their own hands and labor. Their simple motto, "Hands to Work, Hearts to God," is repeated like a mantra in the rhyming text by Ann Turner. Coupled with the chaste, sensitive, almost elegiac paintings of Wendell Minor, this lovely softcover brings back the virtues of hard work, simple needs, rural living, and an admirable religious sect we would do well to contemplate.
