Book Review and Contest~Life with Lily

Life with Lily is a delightful book for 8-12 year olds by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher.  I've always enjoyed Suzanne Woods Fisher's books, and Mary Ann Kinsinger was raised old-order Amish, so she brings first-hand experience to the story! 

I read the book myself-my daughter is 17(she would have loved it years ago), and my youngest son is not quite at this reading level.  I do think he will enjoy reading it within the next few years. Life with Lily is a sweet story about a lively little Amish girl.  The sentences are not too long and complicated, perfect for this age range.  The story was exciting and fun.  I think this will be a great series for kids!

  About the Book: Lily is six in this story, just starting first grade in a one-room schoolhouse in upstate New York. Her parents are busy building a farm, and soon animals join the family—Jenny the cow and Chubby the miniature horse. A baby brother arrives, too, which Lily has mixed feelings about. (She wanted a sister!) Aside from a mischievous friend like Mandy Mast, Lily is happy at school and even happier at home.

Trouble is brewing at the schoolhouse and change is on the horizon for Lily and her family.

“Based upon Kinsinger’s own childhood, it’s reminiscent of the Little House on the Prairie books.” —Romantic Times
