Litfuse Publicity Blog Tour Presents: Life with Lily by Mary Ann Kinsinger, Suzanne Woods Fisher

Book 1 in the ‘Adventures of Lily Lapp’ series.

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.

My Review:

What a joy it was to read this book. I savored it and made it last...trying not to read it all in one sitting. Each day as I walked my Grandson's to the bus...they are ages 5 and 7, I told them about the previous days story. They started begging for more, and could sure relate to Lily and her brothers.
This is the story of a little girl Lily Lapp, and her life in an Amish family. We travel with her and her extended family, her Amish community, her school life, and her home life. We meet a lot of interesting people, some friends, and others??
The book reminds me of one of my favorites...Grandma's Attic Series by Arleta Richardson and the Little House on the Prairie series. I am so glad that now there are more wonderful stories to share with the boys, and I can't wait for the next book in the series. This is one of those books, that linger years after you read it, a very small number of books make it to this level in my mind.

I received this book through Litfuse Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive reveiew.
