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

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 Review:

This is a very cute and charming little book that anyone would enjoy, not just young girls.  This is the first book I have read in the series and I definitely want to read the other ones.  With that being said, I wasn't lost as to who was who in the series.  Lily is such a sweet and inquisitive little girl.  She gets herself into a lot of mischief, but most of the time, she isn't the instigator.  There is a little girl at school and church that she doesn't get along with very well, and that little girl causes Lily a lot of problems.  Some of lily's exploits will have you laughing out loud.  I highly recommend this book if you like a cute, fast read that leaves you feeling good.  Great job Suzanne and Mary Ann.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
