Life with Lily

Life with Lily is the first book in the The Adventures of Lily Lapp Series by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher. Lily is a six year old Amish girl who lives on an upstate New York farm with her parents and two younger brothers.  Lily’s days are filled with helping mama with chores, trying to stay out of trouble with her naughty friend Mandy and braving school with a mean teacher.  Lily loves her rag doll Sally, birthday cake, and helping Grandpa in his harness shop.  Lily does not like scary neighbors, little brothers who tattle, and being the youngest kid in school. 

This book was absolutely precious and will capture every little girl’s heart who reads it.   The Amish have such an incredible lifestyle and your child will learn a great deal from this book.  Lily is such a likeable little girl and her antics will crack you up from beginning to end.  It reminded me to be thankful for what I have and the joy of simplicity.  It was very interesting to watch Lily yearn for “English” things such as a real doll, candy bars and store bought bread and be very fearful and shy of certain things like Halloween and a local parade.  I can’t wait for the second book coming February of 2013.
