“I recently read and reviewed the book, ‘Life With Lily’ by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher. Here is what I liked about it.
The cover was beautiful and the colors seems to jump out at you.
The book was so good that when I read it, it seemed like I was there too. It was so real that I was afraid that if I leaned too close I would fall in.
Why did I like these things? That I don’t know know. I just do.
(I can see we’ll start working on book reports a little more in school.)
I requested this book for review for my nine-year old so I have not read it myself. I appreciate the authors writing a book for children that isn’t “weird”, that I don’t have to look at the cover and think, “I better read this one first.”
Life With Lily is published by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing, and is the first in The Adventures of Lily Lapp series. It is a story about an Amish girl and is written for the 8-12 year age range.
“On a small Amish farm in upstate New York, young Lily Lapp has plenty to do and plenty of people to love. But changes are coming–including a new baby brother, a new teacher at school, and new ways of looking at the world. Lily’s growing up Amish, and there’s always a lot to learn–if only Lily can stay out of trouble.”
“Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
We received a free copy of this book for the purpose of review.
