    What a fantastic idea! Looks like a fun thing for Nana to have at her house when the grands come!
    Thank you Freida for following through with the idea, and for offering the subscription!

    Rainbows and sunshine project

    I enjoyed reading about Frieda’s project and it appears she is doing a great job in spreading Rainbows and Sunshine to many young people, both plain and English. In the past, I subscribed to a couple of the Pathway publications and enjoyed them very much. I can imagine it is somewhat hard for Amish to find periodicals that help invigorate their children and still are within the Ordnung

    Neat Idea!

    I think this is so neat and I commend her for carrying through with her ideas as I know a lot of work goes into putting this out. It crossed my mind that if I win it, before my grandchildren get it…grandma gets to read it first! 🙂 THEN them. 🙂

    Had something like this as a child.

    I had a similar magazine like this as a child. I really looked forward to getting mine. It’s nice to see something like this coming around again. Maybe this will get children reading again!

    Thank you Frieda

    Thank you for telling us about your project. It isn’t easy to find material that is both wholesome and fun, so I should think that this would fill a need. Is there a possibility of selling an online version that overseas customers could print off?

    Love this - what a great way to share

    Love this, what a great way to share another culture with a young child! Thanks for all you do Eric and bringing these incredible blogs to us, I thoroughly enjoy them!

    Such a good idea! I looked over some of the jokes and am sure I’ll be using some at the library where I work (we give kids knock-knock or other short, simple jokes after storytime, every week.) I wish you luck and would like to ask if you take suggestions from readers?

    Thanks for the chance at winning a subscription!

    thank you!

    if you are still giving out a free subscription, count me in please. We delight in learning “plain” ways for our family although we aren’t Amish and live in the suburbs. Thanks and God bless!
