A Big Year for Lily (The Adventures of Lily Lapp #3)A Big Year for Lily by Mary Ann Kinsinger

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again I had the pleasure of reviewing a book in the Lily Lapp series.

These are super cute and enjoyable to read with your children!

The lessons that Lily learns and the mischief that she gets into reminds me a lot of my own ten year old daughter so I look forward to sharing this story with her. I am sure that she will enjoy this story just as much as I have!

These are still enjoyable by an adult because it feels as if we’re reading about our own children. It captures the authentic joy, thoughts and emotions that we have all lived through during our own childhood.

Lily Lapp is turning ten and she is growing up fast! We follow her through some bitter trials at school—a rivalry with a peer and the challenge of dealing with a bully. We also see her coping with growing up—the boredom and discomfort of being unhappy with her toys and her confusion at a cousin’s first crush.

There are up and down times but there are a lot of fun times and of course a lot of love from Lily’s family. I think this little book shows the importance of having family to fall back on and the importance of that bond.

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

Little ones love to be like mama and these books give the avid Amish fiction reader a way to pass on an age appropriate story to introduce them to the genre.
