Set in New York on a small Amish Farm, six-year-old Lily Lapp and her younger brother, Joseph, eagerly welcomes their new baby brother, Dannie, into their lives, even though she actually wanted a baby sister.
While her father is busy building up the farm and her mother is busy with her brothers, young Lily is starting school at a one-room schoolhouse, where she meets new friends like the ornery Misty Mast, who is nothing but trouble for Lily.
Book one in The Adventures of Lily Lapp is aimed at ages 8 and up, but considers its length I can't see an eight-year-old reading the book. Middle-graders would be a more appropriate age group for the book, but older kids and adults can enjoy Lily's adventures too. There are thirty-nine short chapters that can be read all at once, or just read each one as a short story as each is a separate tale for Lily. The book reminds me a lot of Little House on the Prairie, but Life with Lily is about a modern-day Amish girl. Life with Lily is a great way for kids to understand how the Amish live. Overall, I found the book to be a cute read and the character Lily is adorable.
*Note - I received a free copy from Litfuse Publicity and Tyndale in exchange for an honest review.
