A Big Year for Lily | Book Review

Our world has so much going on and even our children can have a very hectic life.  A Big Year for Lily by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher show children how there are others in this world who’s lives are much simpler and just as fulfilling. 

This book is the third in The Adventures of Lily Lapp series and I wish I could say that I have read the first two but, I have not had that opportunity.  Since this was the first one for me I found it a little boring and was kind of lost since I didn’t know the character from the previous books but, this book is written for the age range of 8-12 years old so I am sure that most in that range would love this book.

Lily is a little girl who lives in the Amish community.  She loves all the same things as other little girls, she just has a more simple life.  She spends her days playing with the other girls in her community, she has special occasions just like others, and she has to deal with “bullies” just like any other kid.  Oh…and she LOVES to explore.  Sometimes its not the best thing for her to do.

The story line is great and shows kids that there are others who live amazing lives without all the convinces that most are awarded but, this book jumped around to much for me.  One chapter might be set in summer time and the next would jump forward a few months.  Other than that I think that all little kids could benefit from reading this book. 

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

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.*
