Litfuse Publicity Book Tours Presents: A Big Year for Lily (The Adventures of Lily Lapp #3) by Mary Ann Kinsinger, Suzanne Woods Fisher

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: 

 I just finished the third book in this series, and as usual I want more. The is a darling story of a loving Amish family, and among them is their nine year old daughter Lily. She becomes 10 during this book, and for an Amish girl it is a big step to womanhood.
Loved as she experiences big girl, or womenly dresses. Picking her own fabric, will she make the right choices. She will gain some new duties, and loose some fun things she enjoyed.
She loves that her cousin Hannah now lives nearby, but does Hannah have to like that awful boy Aaron? Made me think, that maybe in the future there maybe some interest in Aaron by Lily, and I can hear her now screaming at me..."No Way!!"
This book gives you a good feeling about people, loved the way Lily's Dad handled the boys who were stealing from them. We also meet the bullies, and the sneaking kids, think all schools have them.
Be ready for some cute adventures, when Lily and Hannah get together. What a wonderful wholesome book. This one you can share with you children. Too cute!

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