My daughter and I both enjoyed Thee Hannah! In addition to a fun, sweet story, the book really appealed to me as a mom. It is packed with "talking points" that make it a book to keep around and re-read together. Here's a few of the issues the book addresses: ** Hannah struggles throughout the book to obey and usually fails. Her parents address her character failings with compassion while allowing her to suffer the consequences of her poor choices. ** Hannah struggles with being different because of her Quaker faith. However, the lessons she learns can help any child struggling to fit in. ** I loved the way that this book addresses the issue of modesty and decent dress that young girls face today. If you are trying to help a daughter choose to dress more modestly than what they are seeing in the media, Thee Hannah! will give your daughter someone to relate to. ** The Hannah! is set at a time when the Quakers are helping runaway slaves. Events in the book help you discuss these historical events in a story setting.
