A Big Year for Lily

As a homeschooling momma, I am always looking for new and fun books for my little ladies to read! So of course, I was thrilled to see a children's book was available for review!

"A Big Year for Lily (The Adventures of Lily Lapp)" by Mary Ann Kinsinger & Suzanne Woods Fisher is a fun and adorable read for little girls! Lily is a 9 year old who is part of an Amish family. Life on a farm is always fun for Lily, but she is not enjoying school like she usually does. This year in school, Lily has had quite a bit of trouble with mean girls and bullies. And there is a particular boy who loves to pick on her. But lucky for her, she has a Mama and a Papa who love her very much, and help her to navigate through these lessons.

I actually enjoyed reading this book quite a bit even though it is a children's book. Maybe that's because I loved reading the Little House on the Prairie series as a child, and this book reminded me of those. "A Big Year for Lily" will definitely be on my daughter's reading list for this school year. On Goodreads, it says that this book is aimed at 8-12 year old girls, but I think if you have a little one who loves to read, it could be read by a 6 or 7 year old. I would love to read the rest of the books in this lovely series!

I think little girls will love reading all about Lily and her best friend Hannah, and will be able to relate to a lot of the same things that Lily goes through. I rate this book as 5 stars!

*I received this book for free through Litfuse to give my honest unbiased opinion.*

Available July 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
