Life with Lily by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher

Life with Lily
Life with Lily by Mary Anne Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher

About the Book: 

Book 1 in the ‘Adventures of Lily Lapp’ series.

Lily is six in this story, just starting first grade in a one-room schoolhouse in upstate New York. Her parents are busy building a farm, and soon animals join the family—Jenny the cow and Chubby the miniature horse. A baby brother arrives, too, which Lily has mixed feelings about. (She wanted a sister!) Aside from a mischievous friend like Mandy Mast, Lily is happy at school and even happier at home. 

Trouble is brewing at the schoolhouse and change is on the horizon for Lily and her family.

Meet Suzanne: 

Suzanne Woods Fisher lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has one husband, four children, one son-in-law, a brand new grand-baby, and a couple of dogs. She graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California.

Suzanne has contracts with Revell for six more books about the Amish, both fiction and non-fiction. She is also the host of “Amish Wisdom·” on, a weekly radio program featuring guests who are connected to Simple Living.

My Take:  I have enjoyed several of Suzanne Woods Fisher's adult Amish books and was curious to try one that is aimed more for kids.  Having recently become a grandmother, I am constantly on the look out for books that are wholesome and uplifting for my grand daughter.  I think that this book falls into that category. I look forward to reading the rest of the series and it will be saved for when my granddaughter is old enough to read them to her as cuddle time stories and I hope that she will want to read them herself when she can read.  This series follows Lily Lapp in her everyday life as a young Amish girl living in New York.  It is nice to get the child's point of view after all of the adult Amish books I have read.  It was a refreshing change. I also liked the whimsical illustrations that were throughout the book.  
I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  
Highly recommended if you are looking for a good wholesome read for children.
