Life with Lily

{More about Life with Lily}

Book 1 in the ‘Adventures of Lily Lapp’ series.
Lily is six in this story, just starting first grade in a one-room schoolhouse in upstate New York. Her parents are busy building a farm, and soon animals join the family—Jenny the cow and Chubby the miniature horse. A baby brother arrives, too, which Lily has mixed feelings about. (She wanted a sister!) Aside from a mischievous friend like Mandy Mast, Lily is happy at school and even happier at home. Trouble is brewing at the schoolhouse and change is on the horizon for Lily and her family.

My Review:

I am a huge fan of Suzanne Woods Fisher, so I was excited to read book 1 in her new series, a series for children!  I have read this book myself and I am also reading it to my daughter, she is four and she enjoys it as well! It is a long book for young children, so we have been reading through a chapter a day.  The style of writing is perfect for children as it is written from Lily's point of view and her thoughts and questions reflect those of young childen.  The descriptive writing is perfect as well for young children.  I think my daughter's favorite scene so far is when Lily's grandmother is decorating Lily's mother's birthday cake with pink frosting that tastes just like pink frosting should taste.  While reading this book be prepared for giggles, questions and overall a good book to experience and share together!

“Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
