A Big Year for Lily
Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher
I was excited when given the opportunity to read and review another book in The Adventures of Lily Lapp series. This series is written for young kids ages 8-12, but I think girls will find it more interesting than boys. It’s a great way to introduce kids to another culture that exists in our very own backyard as well as get them interested in the Amish Fiction genre. I really appreciate the effort by Kinsinger and Fisher to put books with a wholesome message into our youngster’s hands. This book is the third in the series and just as fun to read as the previous two. My 8 year old daughter loves to read about Lily’s adventures and can’t wait for me to pass this book on to her!
Here’s what suzannewoodsfisher.com has to say about A Big Year for Lily:
Lily Lapp’s family has settled into their new home in Pennsylvania, but life still holds big changes and big steps for Lily. Good changes, like once again living close to her beloved cousin and best friend, Hannah. Bad changes, like a mean girl who plays tricks on her. And no change at all where Lily would most want one–Aaron Yoder sits near her in school and relentlessly teases her. Surprises are in store for Lily as she learns, with Mama and Papa’s help, to manage the ups and downs of growing up Amish.
The third of four charming novels that chronicle the gentle way of the Amish through the eyes of a young girl, A Big Year for Lily gives children ages 8-12 a fascinating glimpse into the life of the Amish–and lots of fun and laughter along the way. It combines Mary Ann Kinsinger’s real-life stories of growing up Amish and the bestselling writing of Amish fiction and nonfiction author Suzanne Woods Fisher. With charming line drawings in each book, this series captures the hearts of readers young and old.
