Shoo Fly Girl Reviews
I adored this book; so far, it's my favorite of the Lenski regionals. I learned a lot about the Amish culture and it made me curious to learn more. The illustrations are precious and so loving. In Lenski's introduction, she discusses her love of the Amish families she stayed with as she studied their culture and gained inspirations for her characters and it's very evident in her illustrations and the story lines.I identified a lot with the little Shoo Fly Girl because she is very literal and when people say things to her, she takes them at their word even if they are being dramatic or sarcastic or what have you. Poor little Shoo Fly Girl experienced a lot of anxiety due to her sweet innocent gullibility followed by surprise and relief when she discovers things weren't meant to be taken literally. I saw so much of myself as a little girl in Shoo Fly Girl!
I can't remember if I read this one as a child--only Strawberry Girl, Prairie School and Blue Ridge Billy made an impression when I would have been the appropriate age.Today they all would be as much a period piece for kids who might want to read them, though Shoo-fly Girl might be the closest still to describing its original subjects: the Old Order Amish in Pennsylvania are (IIRC) still pretty nearly as conservative as they are in this group. Though fifty years may have made a change or two in the Amish herein--they certainly have in the outside world--I have to wonder if even this most conservative group is so isolated as all that. For those who weren't paying attention, related groups have spread out through Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and points west, all conservative, though none so much so as this. I've seen similarly attired family groups to Susanna's in the train station in Chicago, and even the airport in South Bend; they very calmly explain, to anyone who inquires, that some technology may be used for Godly purposes. Trains, automobiles and even airplanes are OK but not, say, a candy apple red little sports car.
This is one book that I will not be able to recommend to parents to let their child read. I see all of the 4 and 5 star reviews but I am just unable to give this book a high rating. There was so much disobedience among the children, especially Shoo-Fly and Jonas. Grandma has a serious accident, a cousin has a serious accident, a strange man (whom Shoo-Fly says she "hates") keeps showing up. When he finally "explains himself", he tells of being so interested in the Amish simple life because his children have wasted his money and that his wife and family have left him. I found this to be a very dark and disturbing book. I have several other Lois Lenski books that I have not read yet.......maybe they get better.
A friend brought shoo-fly pie to our Pi(e) Day Party, which made me think of this book, so I tracked it down through the interlibrary loan system in our state in order to read it again. It is a cozy story, insights into every day life with a tiny bit of danger and worry to keep it interesting. But at the same time, it felt kind of disjointed - something I might not have noticed so much if I were in the target age group? I know I read many Lois Lenski books as a child and enjoyed them at the time. Despite being written in the 1960s, it doesn't feel very dated - although perhaps these days Jonas would be listening to hip-hop instead of jazz on the illicit radio :^)
This is a favorite "feel good" book from my childhood. It is no longer in print, but a dear friend searched online and found a used coopy for me for my birthday. I have just finished reading it again, and it was as good as it was when I read it at age 9. I love reading about the amish, and have continued to enjoy stories portraying them. This book is what started my fascination! I tried the shoo-fly pie recipe included, and it was great! All of my family (except 1) loved it!
This is one we've been able to find; and I think the recipe in the back worked for us, unlike the one my mom already had (from a Pennsylvanian!)
Read this as a kid and loved it. Still haven't gotten my Shoo Fly pie though...
Story of Suzanna nicknamed Shoo Fly Girl and life in the Amish country.
Enjoyable read for home school. Love illustrations also.
