    I am quite pleased to offer my review for a book that is possibly the only series of its kind Amish books are so widely popular, and this is the perfect series for introducing children to this cultural phenomenon I was privileged to read the first book, but I somehow missed the second book As outstanding as the first book was, this book is even better I was thoroughly engaged, and I often lost track of time as I raced through the pages.At times I felt that I was reading Little House on the Prairie Amish style I took great delight in that series as a child, and this book is so similar and yet stands on its own This book works well for the third book in the series, but it is also a stand alone book The characters appear to be authentic, and I appreciate the history and cultural lessons that are taught within this book I found myself so engrossed, and the humor in the book was often laugh out loud funny My only criticism is that I ...

    First sentence Lily s toes felt tingly.This is the third book in this contemporary Amish middle grade series When the series first started Lily was oh so precious and just six years old In this one she turns ten years old She s matured so much since that first book Which is both good and bad Good because maturity is to be expected and appreciated One can t stay frozen in time It s impossible Bad because I miss the Lily that was The little Lily made me laugh time and time again.Lily at home Lily at school Lily at church That s what we get to see in this newest book Lily continues to struggle to get along with her two archenemies Effie and A...

    Review Another lovely, lively Lily Lapp tale The third book in the series has enough details in it that it can be read without having read the first two volumes It would make a perfect chapter book to read to young children or for a 6,7, 8 year old and up to read alone As the family grows, Lily grows up gaining responsibilities, often watching her baby brother, Paul Her other siblings, Joseph and Dannie sometimes irritate her when she wants to spend time alone reading or painting pictures Still she loves them and feels terrible when Dannie crashes into the barn on his first solo sled ride Lily was supposed to be in charge, but couldn t resist his request to go down the hill alone The family is trying to make the best of Christmas Day alone while Dannie recuperates, but would love to be with the extended family at Grandpa and Grandma s They are surprised and touched when the entire Christmas Day feast is carried to them and all the relatives trek through the snow to spend the day with Lily s family This is just one instance showing the strong family ties in the Amish brotherhood School has been a highlight in Lily s life in the past years and she can t wait till it starts again, especially since cousin Hannah will be at her school now When Hannah takes a liking to Aaron, the boy who seems to live to make Lily s days miserable, it come...

    Quickly Becoming A Family Favorite Lily s story continues in the Adventures of Lily Lapp series by Suzanne Woods Fisher and Mary Ann Kinsinger with book three A Big Year for Lily This series has been recommended for children ages 8 12 although I have been reading these books aloud to my girls, ages 6 and 9, and I have found myself looking forward to our nightly reading times I have even caught my boys ages 11, 14, and 17 listening in Amish children are not much different than English children They enjoy playing many of the same games, playing with friends, and have to learn to deal with feeling left out and being jealous Lily has a hard time getting along with Effie Kauffman, who tends to be very bossy When Lily decides to climb an apple tree to pick the apples that are out of reach, Effie declares she is sinning and being unlady like Lily declares that to be untrue, but when she jumps from the tree and rips the back of her dress she is than a little embarrassed Even at home there are sibling rivalries between Lily and her younger brothers Lily finally was able to move from h...

    Lily Lapp is nine and for a young Amish girl there are as many challenges for her as any nine year old girl Her first and foremost issue is dealing with Aaron Yoder, a boy that thrives on teasing Lily whenever the opportunity becomes available When her pencil rolls off the desk and she bends over to retrieve it, he holds his hand over her head while the rest of her class laughs Her only hope this year is that her Cousin Hannah is joining her Perhaps dealing with Aaron with an ally by her side won t be so bad after all But when Hannah soon finds that Aaron isn t as bad as Lily claims and even finds herself wondering if Aaron likes her, Lily is literally at wit s end Could this year possibly get any worse In the latest novel, A Big Year for Lily, by authors Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher, The Adventures of Lily Lapp continues in book 3 Geared for children 8 and up, this makes a wonderful chapter book to get your child started in loving a different kind of life as an Amish child Most of the time, there are very few differences between any nine year old There are sibling rivalries as Lily is the only girl in a houseful of boys, there is the bossy classmate, Effie, who thinks all the things Lily is interested in are simply things a girl should never participate in, even calling a climb in the apple tree a sin, which Lily proudly proclaims is not Only to her horror, she j...

    This is the third book in The Adventures of Lily Lapp, A Big Year for Lily, and I think my favorite thus far There will be a fourth in this series due out later which will complete it These are absolutely charming books These Chapter Books are gems just waiting to be discovered by little girls ages 8 12, or anyone who likes loves to read about the Amish, even adults Surprisingly, I learned a lot from reading these books as well, and it amazed me because I read a lot of Amish books and thought I knew all there was to know Boy, was I wrong There are things in this series of books I did not know about such as the things the children go through at their different ages, what s expected of them and Yes, there are the Little House on the Prairie books, and you could almost mistake these books as similar to them, but these books go further than those and are even better because these books have real, live people who are living this way today and every day Little House, meet the Amish, and a little girl named Lily Lapp who are alive and living this way for the last three centuries, and will be well into the future This book is about Lily turning 10 This is quite a year for her Turning 10 brings about a lot of big changes and responsibilities for Lily My favorite is her new dress When the girls turn 10, they graduate into getting to wear the big gi...
