About the Book:

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.

My Thoughts:

I had the opportunity to read all three books in the series. Lily is a curious young girl who is always getting into trouble but she is learning important things about life and being Amish. This is a great series that will entertain children as well as adults. The chapters are written as short stories and kept me engaged. The book was written through the eyes of Lily as she struggles to work out her problems with one of the children in her class who is constantly playing pranks on her. I look forward to reading the forth book in the series.

  1. When I go to the facebook page, the rafflecopter says the contest is over - even though it states it isn't over until the 27th. :(
