Life with Lily Book Review

 Life with Lily is the first book in the new series for children, ages 8-12, The Adventures of Lily Lapp by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher.

"On a small Amish farm in upstate New York, young Lily Lapp has plenty to do and plenty of people to love. But changes are coming--including a new baby brother, a new teacher at school, and new ways of looking at the world. Lily's growing up Amish, and there's always a lot to learn--if only Lily can stay out of trouble."

In Life with Lily you will meet 5 year old Lily Lapp. Lily is very mischievous, and an overall good girl. Lily tries very hard to stay out of trouble bu.t with so much adventure around every corner it makes it hard. Lily works and plays hard. She is about to learn many of life’s lessons on honesty, patience, and the love of family.

My thoughts:

It was interesting to read about Amish life from a child's perspective rather than an adult perspective. I feel like I was taken back to the days when I was a kid and read the “Little House on the Prairie” books.

This is a great series that is wholesome, entertaining, and will delight parents and children alike for years to come. I love it when I find a book that I don’t have to worry about for my kids to read.  

The chapters are short and feel like mini short stories. Which I think is what makes this a great book for younger kids to keep their attention.  I also liked how they have a, “Frequently Asked Questions About the Amish” at the end of the book. My kids haven’t read any books on the Amish at this point. This will be a good place to start at before we read the book.

 I enjoyed the adventures of Lily and look forward to the other books in this series. This story is well written and you will fall in love with the Lapp family.

  Litfuse Publicity Group has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book. In no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  “Based upon Kinsinger’s own childhood, it’s reminiscent of the Little House on the Prairie books.”
