About the Book:
For a child, every day is a thing of wonder. And for six-year-old Lily Lapp, every day is a new opportunity for blessings, laughter, family, and a touch of mischief. As she explores her world, goes to school, spends time with her family, and gets into a bit of trouble with her friends, Lily learns what it means to be Amish and what it means to grow up. From getting a new teacher to welcoming a new sibling, Lily's life is always full of adventure.
The first of four charming novels that chronicle the gentle way of the Amish through the eyes of a young girl, Life with 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 the real-life stories of growing up Amish from Mary Ann Kinsinger and the bestselling writing of Amish fiction and nonfiction author Suzanne Woods Fisher. With charming illustrations throughout, this series is sure to capture the hearts of readers young and old.

I really enjoyed the book. It is full of lovely illustrations that enhanced the book. Lily is an energetic 6 yr old Amish girl who gets into mischief and is adorable. The book was written for the younger reader and has short chapters that will keep them interested. It will teach you about family values, responsibility, friendship and a life that is different from ours. You do not have to be a kid to read this book and you may learn a little more about life and what it offers. I wonder what adventures Lily will get into in book two of the series coming soon.
