LIFE WITH LILY

Image of Life with Lily (The Adventures of Lily Lapp)

In this first of four novels, the reader is introduced to Lily Lapp, a 6-year old Amish girl. Based upon Kinsinger’s own childhood, it’s reminiscent of the Little House on the Prairie books. As it’s aimed at 8- to 12-year-olds, older readers may find the story’s flow awkward, but the humor and wonderment of childhood is worth the read.

Lily enjoys the adventures of each new day. Whether it is facing a mean new teacher or sneaking out of the house instead of taking a nap, she is a bundle of activity. As you travel with her, you’ll learn the Amish way of life. (REVELL, Oct., 288 pp., $12.99)
