Penny Olive is an introduction to a sweet Pennsylvania Dutch girl from Berks County, Pennsylvania. The book was written and illustrated by Rachel Yoder, a contemporary Pennsylvania Dutch folk artist.  

Penny Olive introduces us to her and her family and shares her favorite things about Pennsylvania Dutch culture. Translated by Douglas J. Madenford into Pennsylvania Dutch, one side is in English and when you flip the book over—the other side is in Deitsch! A great introduction to the Pennsylvania Dutch language for children and adults alike. (44pp. full-color illus. Masthof Press, 2016.)
