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 series is so wonderful.  I enjoyed reading them and I plan on having my daughter read them as well.  They are not really meant for adults, but they were a cute, enjoyable, very easy read.  They are such a nice read for kids, knowing that they are not reading filth.  The books have morals and definitely hold higher standards on acceptable behavior than the "normal" books out there for children today.  They are filled with adventures and good, old fashioned child play.
I recommend this series to all girls probably aged 5 (as a read aloud also) to 12ish. 
 
 
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
