About A Big Year for Lily:
Book Three in the Adventures of Lily Lapp series. Co-written with Mary Kinsinger.
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
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 Take: This is the third book in the delightful series of books written for girls ages8-12. These books take the girls into the everyday life of a young Amish girl and her friends and family. This book explores alot of the issues kids face today whether they are Amish or not. Moving to a new place, putting up with pranksters, friends acting different. This book is also co-written by Suzanne Woods Fisher who has written a couple of book series about the Amish. I have enjoyed all of the books I have read by her. I will be keeping these books to give to my grandchildren when they are old enough for them If you like Amish stories you may just enjoy them yourself. They are perfect for the age group mentioned above but I think everyone could enjoy them.
I was sent a review copy of this book by LitFuse in exchange for my honest review.
