February 1, 2013 8 and upThe Adventures of Lily Lapp (Book 2)

Lily Lapp is moving with her family to Pennsylvania to join a new Amish community. In this small town where changes--and newcomers--are greeted with suspicion, Lily must adjust to a new school, new friends, and Aaron Yoder, an annoying boy who teases her relentlessly. Still, there are exciting new developments, including an attic full of adventure and a new baby brother. But why, Lily wonders, can't God bring her just one sister?

The second novel in the charming Adventures of Lily Lapp series, A New Home 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 the real-life stories of growing up Amish from Mary Ann Kinsinger and the bestselling writing of Amish fiction and nonfiction author Suzanne Woods Fisher. With line illustrations throughout, this series is sure to capture the hearts of readers young and old.

My take on this book:
"A New Home for Lily" has Lily and her family moving to Pennsylvania to be closer to family. Things are really changing for young Lily. She no longer has her own bedroom, she finds herself in a new school with new children, added to that is the fact that there is a new baby in the house.  She does have her faithful dolly Sally. While some changes seem a little intimidating some are chock full of fun. One  things certain young Lily keeps her faithful dolly Sally close by for comfort! Will Lily adjust to all the changes going on? Read this wonderful book to be pulled along into young Lily's life where adventures abound, and the reader gets wonderful glimpses of Amish life.

While this book is geared toward the younger reading set, I find it a totally refreshing read. I enjoy reading about the day to day Amish goings on, and the character of Lily is just wonderful. Life is full of adventure and never boring your Lily. A great read whether your eight or eighty. Young girls are going to enjoy Lily and her adventures while they learn about the Amish lifestyle. I can't recommend this series enough. On a scale of one to five it easily gets a six in my book!
