A Big Year For Lily by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher

About A Big Year for Lily:

Book Three in the Adventures of Lily Lapp series. Co-written with Mary Kinsinger.

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 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.
