A Big Year For Lily – Book Review

Have you ever wondered:

  • What’s it like to grow up Amish?
  • How do the lives of Amish children different from yours?
  • In what ways are Amish children similar to you?

If so, The Adventures Of Lily Lapp Series is for you!

The Adventures Of Lily Lapp Series is a 4-book series of stories, written with children ages 8 to 12 in mind, about a young Amish girl named Lily Lapp. Each book in the series chronicles a period of her life – starting at age six – and the experiences and adventures she goes through. Even though it’s written for children, it’s a charming series that readers of all ages will enjoy!

The latest release in the series is A Big Year For Lily – The Adventures Of Lily Lapp, Book Three. In this story, Lily turns 10, which means many changes are on the horizon for her. Each of the book’s 40 chapters contains a charming vignette from a moment in Lily’s life. Even though many of Lily’s experiences are unique to her Amish upbringing, many of the stories have universal qualities that readers everywhere will relate to. You’ll enjoy reliving the good times Lily shares with her cousin Hannah; you’ll wince as you read tales of torment caused by mean girl Effie Kauffman; you’ll appreciate the life lessons imparted by Lily’s wise parents.

There are a few things that make A Big Year For Lily special:

  • The book is illustrated with beautiful line drawings that are perfect for coloring!
  • The book contains several special features, such as Mama’s Pig Story, the Amish recipe for Sweetheart Pudding, and Questions About The Old Amish Order.
  • The book – and series – is inspired by the childhood memories of Mary Ann Kinsinger, who was raised Old Amish Order.

A Big Year For Lily is a wholesome book that is appropriate for family members of all ages!
