The third of four charming novels that chronicle the gentle way of the Amish through the eyes of a young girl, A Big Year for Lily gives children, ages 8-12 a fascinating glimpse into the life of the Amish–and lots of fun and laughter along the way. It combines Mary Ann Kinsinger’s real-life stories of growing up Amish and the bestselling writing of Amish fiction and nonfiction author Suzanne Woods Fisher. With charming line drawings in each book, this series captures the hearts of readers young and old.
A Big Year for Lily can be read as a stand alone or a read in the series. My daughter(9) and I really enjoyed the story! A Big Year for Lily had several funny parts that had us laughing out loud! The illustrations are simple, yet beautiful. The book centers on all of the changes Lily is going through. Her family recently moved and she is dealing with a new school and new friends. She is also turning 10, which is a special year among Amish children where you get to wear caped dresses and mingle with the older girls at church. It is also a time where she is learning to make more mature decisions and starting to feel grown up. She faces obstacles with certain kids at school and she learns to handle them quite well. This is a delightful book that is full of good family friendly reading.
