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.

Publisher’s Weekly:

Readers will relate to the mean Amish schoolteacher and Lily’s difficult friend Mandy, who manipulates her into getting in trouble. Adults’ concerns about making ends meet, illness, and death lap at Lily’s life, but her parents prove an unbreachable levee, protecting her and their way of life. The simple prose focused on daily living will appeal to those who like realistic fiction that comforts rather than challenges.

4 Stars from Romantic Times:

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.

  • LESSONS FROM A SIX YEAR OLD

    This is a book filled with the delight of a child’s imagination and the mischief that inevitably follows. If you have children you will want to read this book aloud to your family. It is one of the best sources of entertainment we have had. We can learn so much from the Amish, and here is a way to step right into it through the life of a six year old.

  • WONDERFUL BOOK FOR YOUNG GIRLS!

    This book was totally adorable! It’s been awhile since I’ve read a book from a young child’s point of view. Normally, my kids have books that tell the story through a 3rd person. Reading Life with Lily was a refreshing change!

  • BOOK REVIEW: LIFE WITH LILY BY MARY ANN KINSINGER AND SUZANNE WOODS FISHER

    This is an adorable book! It reminds me very much of the Laura Ingalls/Little House on the Prairie series that we had growing up. You will laugh with Lily and share in her grief at having an ‘ugly baby brother’ for example, and at how her delights in her simple world come through in brilliant color to the reader. isn’t it amazing how young kids see things as they truly are, without our adult shaded nuances we put on things? The series is aimed at kids 8-12, but Kiddo loved the chapters, and lovely ink drawings, we read together and wanted to know more about Lily’s life, so I’ll keep reading it to her! I can see the series growing as Lily grows (it is set to be the first of 4), and new situations arise in her world. I hope it does, as I know Kiddo will be reading it! We highly recommend it for all the young girls in your life!

    How refreshing to see a little girl who appreciates what she has and isn’t caught inthe cycle of wanting more and more. Who plays with, dresses and loves her rag doll! I think this series is going to be such a bonus for children.

  • LIFE WITH LILY

    Though I’ve enjoyed books by Suzanne Woods Fisher before, Life with Lily (The Adventures of Lily Lapp) was just right for my daughter. She grabbed it when the package arrived, and I didn’t see it again until she had completed the book!
    Black and white drawings are scattered throughout the pages which remind me of an old fashioned story book like I read at my Grandmother’s house as a little girl. This is the first book in a series, so be sure to look for more.

    I am absolutely thrilled that my daughter has enjoyed reading this with me and it gives us an opportunity to talk about the lifestyles that some families have that are different from ours. It allows us to interact more and show how truly educational reading can be and how it really brings us together as a family.

    What a joy it was to read this book. I savored it and made it last…trying not to read it all in one sitting. Each day as I walked my Grandson’s to the bus…they are ages 5 and 7, I told them about the previous days story. They started begging for more, and could sure relate to Lily and her brothers.

  • SWEET LITTLE BOOK

    We are taken on a fun and playful spin on Amish fiction, as seen through the eyes of a mischievous little girl. I found myself laughing out loud many times. One of my favorite parts of this book involves a chainsaw, Lily’s mother’s legs, and a stranger. What Lily thinks and how she reacts is just too cute. All in all, Life with Lily is an absolutely adorable book, and I am anxious to see what adventures are next for Lily Lapp.

  • “LIFE WITH LILY” BOOK ONE BY MARY ANN KINSINGER AND SUZANNE WOODS FISHER

    This set of books will truly be classics that every little girl (and little boys may enjoy these books, too, as she has little brothers) should have in her library. They will be enjoyed immensely. We ALL know how GREAT Suzanne Woods Fisher’s writing is, so you can just imagine how GREAT this book is! As I just said, the Adults will enjoy this book just as much as the children will. I can just envision a library setting in which there are a lot of little girls and boys all sitting around just mesmerized by the tales in this book! Enjoy!

  • LIFE WITH LILY REVIEW

    I have been reading this book with my 3 children and we have been thoroughly enjoying this book. Lily and her family give you the feel that you are right there and a part of their lives.
    Her Brother is the curious type and finds himself getting into some predicaments.

    There have been times that you feel sad and could cry, times when you were thrilled and time when you just feel involved in their lives like you are there going through the emotions with them.

    So many of the modern books written today our family does not take part in reading, This book was very enjoyable for Myself as well as my children. Many days after reading to the end of a chapter as a stopping place you children would beg me to read more.

    I highly recommend this book and
    I am anxiously looking forward to seeing Lily again in book 2, A New Home For Lily, set for release in February 2013!

  • WE LOVE LIFE WITH LILY!!!

    This book was an absolute delight! I will admit that I was a bit concerned when I originally saw it, as it’s quite a large book for an 8-12 year old, BUT I love that the chapters are short and each one would make a great bedtime story! As for my daughter she absolutely DEVOURED the book! All 276 pages in about 2 days! In fact I have a sweet pic of her sprawled on the couch reading (that Suzanne Woods Fisher actually re-tweeted when she saw it!). ‘Orangie’ very VERY much enjoyed this book, and is eagerly awaiting book two!!

    Life with Lily is a welcome addition to children’s books. Joining the Amish genre the writing and book itself is very similar to the Little House books with each chapter being a story all in itself. This is a great book to read aloud at bedtime.

  • SUZANNE WOODS FISHER AND MARY ANN KINSINGER’S LIFE WITH LILY GIVEAWAY!!

    What a charming book! Lily is the oldest, her mom just had her baby brother Dannie, Lily’s reaction to Dannie was priceless . . page 15 . . . Lily peeked at the baby. Why, it was the ugliest little baby Lily had ever seen! His face was all red and wrinkly. His head was bald. Lily didn’t know what to say as Papa lifted the baby carefully out of Mama’s arms. He asked Lily to sit in the rocking chair next to the bed.
    I was laughing so hard when I read that I nearly wet my pants. As adults we OOO and AHH over new baby’s but we have no idea what little children are thinking.
    The age range is 8-12, however this would be a great read aloud at bedtime for kids younger. There are sketches that are in the book, much like what you would find in the Little House On The Prairie series.

    Life with Lily is a delightful book for 8-12 year olds by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher. I’ve always enjoyed Suzanne Woods Fisher’s books, and Mary Ann Kinsinger was raised old-order Amish, so she brings first-hand experience to the story!

    I read the book myself-my daughter is 17(she would have loved it years ago), and my youngest son is not quite at this reading level. I do think he will enjoy reading it within the next few years. Life with Lily is a sweet story about a lively little Amish girl. The sentences are not too long and complicated, perfect for this age range. The story was exciting and fun. I think this will be a great series for kids!

    A sweet, simple story that shows the sweet, simple life, beautifully.

    This looks to be the beginning of a lovely series featuring the life of Lily, a curious six year old. I love the child-like wonder that the authors showed in all that Lily saw and did, how she noticed every small moment and made the most out of them. This beautiful innocence that children go into every situation with is portrayed in every chapter. It reminded me of how I looked at the world as a child and still try to.

    This is an awesome book!! I asked my eleven-year-old daughter to read it and get her thoughts. She loved it too and is looking forward to more. The stories remind both of us of a modern-day Laura Ingalls Wilder in Amish clothing and lifestyle. Lily is an exciting six-year-old who looks at the world with wide-eyed wonder. She struggles with friends, school and little brothers, but loves her family, her doll Sally and her home. This is a book I think would be interesting to both boys and girls.

    I was absolutely delighted with this book on all counts. I originally got this for my daughter to review, but her schedule did not permit it. So I decided to undertake the task. As I began the book, I was reminded more than once of “Little House on the Prairie,” a book series that I absolutely loved as a child. I felt like I was reading a modern-day pioneer story! And the delightful illustrations only added to the charm of this book.

    Life with Lily is an enchanting peek into the life of the Amish as seen through the eyes of an adventurous 6 year old little girl. Absolutely delightful! My 9 year old daughter and I were charmed by Lily Lapp and we’re anxious to read her further adventures. So excited that this is just the beginning of this new series of books! It’s like an Amish Little House on the Prairie!

  • LIFE WITH LILY

    The story came together beautifully in my opinion and I could not tell that this book was written by two different authors; the story didn’t seem to flip back and forth between two different writing styles and it didn’t seem like I was reading two different stories written by two different authors. It seemed like I was reading the same story told (or narrated) by two different people.

    I feel that this would be a good book for both children and adults to read who want to learn more about the ways of the Amish. It would also be a good book for adults and children who love Amish fiction.

  • LIFE WITH LILY BY MARY ANNE KINSINGER AND SUZANNE WOODS FISHER

    Having recently become a grandmother, I am constantly on the look out for books that are wholesome and uplifting for my grand daughter. I think that this book falls into that category. I look forward to reading the rest of the series and it will be saved for when my granddaughter is old enough to read them to her as cuddle time stories and I hope that she will want to read them herself when she can read. This series follows Lily Lapp in her everyday life as a young Amish girl living in New York. It is nice to get the child’s point of view after all of the adult Amish books I have read. It was a refreshing change. I also liked the whimsical illustrations that were throughout the book.

  • LIFE WITH LILY

    I have been reading Life with Lily aloud to Justin and Kaden and all three of us have loved this story! We have laughed out loud at some of Lily’s antics! We really enjoyed this story and are looking forward to the rest of the series! Life with Lily is a great book to introduce your children to Amish life. The age recommendations are for ages 8-12.

    I am putting this book on the shelf, right beside the Little House on the Prairie books and the Anne of Green Gables because I know this will be a series that I want my daughter to read and re-read as she grows older.

  • LIFE WITH LILY BY SUZANNE WOODS FISHER

    This is a sweet book that is similar in many ways to the Little House on the Prairies series. It is about the everyday activities of a six year old little girl. Her and her family are Old Order Amish. Author Mary Ann Kinsinger takes memories from her childhood to build the story of Lily. Suzanne Woods Fisher pulls all of these memories together into this darling series.

  • LIFE WITH LILY – BOOK REVIEW

    A winner for Suzanne Woods Fisher and Mary Ann Kinsinger!!

    While reading Life with Lily, I felt like I was living right there with Lily! This story was told in a child’s tone. A very easy read. I could have read it to my children and they would have understood it.
    I can’t wait to read about Lily’s next chapter in life in the new book book A Home for Lily, coming in February 2013.

  • SWEET CHILDREN’S BOOK

    This book seemed to have a Little House on the Prairie type feel only in Amish living. Children will get to read what Amish life is like from an Amish child’s point of view. Each chapter is a story in itself but all tied into the same girl’s life.

    As I read this story to my little girls we were able to take a peek into Amish life through the eyes of Lily. They learned that Lily is a lot like them, she likes to play with dolls, color, help her parents, and sometimes she is naughty.

  • BOOK REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY: LIFE WITH LILY

    I love Amish books and this one was great. It wasn’t the typical romance that I read, but it was wonderful. I also love learning about the ways of life for the Amish and why they do and believe the things they do. In the books I normally read you get tidbits about those things, but in this book you learn as Lily learns, which I really enjoyed. It is about a little girl named Lily who is growing up, as all children do, learning life lessons along the way. Lily’s lessons are lessons that Amish children learn and they can also teach us some lessons, too. Life with Lily is a terrific book for people of all ages. I will definitely introduce it to my daughter for her to read. The chapters are short and there are several illustrations throughout the book. I look forward to the next books in this series.

  • BOOK REVIEW: LIFE WITH LILY

    I love this idea — a look at a very different culture in a very positive way. Lily’s observations of the mysteries of adults, the complications of friendships and the many changes facing her ring so true — they are universal whether you are growing up Amish or not.

  • REVIEW – LIFE WITH LILY

    The book reminds me a lot of Little House on the Prairie, but Life with Lily is about a modern-day Amish girl. Life with Lily is a great way for kids to understand how the Amish live.

  • GOOD CLEAN READ FOR KIDS

    Overall, this is just a good clean read for kids. My kids don’t realize how many luxuries they have. reading the story from Lily’s point of view just makes it all seem so different. I’m glad that this is going to be a series.

  • BOOK REVIEW: LIFE WITH LILY

    I think the book is fabulous. Lily is curious and intelligent and simply a lot of fun. I am reminded of reading other book series’ about bright, inquisitive little girls from times past — books like Little House in the Big Woods…

  • A FUN READ!

    Because the chapters are fairly short and each tell a story of their own, I think this book would be a great bedtime story selection

  • LIFE WITH LILY

    I loved each chapter because they were charming vignette. Younger school children would enjoy hearing a chapter a day read aloud. It would make a great classroom read or one that parents could read to their small ones at bedtime.
    I loved how the book brought out great life lessons without being overly preachy. I would recommend Life with Lily to girls age six to twelve, with the younger ones being read to. Each chapter contains a drawn illustration, which adds to the overall charm of the book. When I finished I could not wait for the next book in the series to come out. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have shared it with a young mother so that she can read it to her little ones.. It was interesting to read about Amish life from a child’s point of view. I know my granddaughter will enjoy this story. I would recommend this book for children who are looking for an interesting book full of adventure. Parents will like it also for the values that are modeled in the adventures Lily encounters.

  • BOOK REVIEW – “LIFE WITH LILY”

    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!

  • GREAT AMISH BOOK FOR THE YOUNG READER

    How cool is this? One of my favorite authors and blog friends is Suzanne Fisher. I have read all her books and they are wonderful. She has paired up with another blog friend~ Mary Ann Kinsinger. Mary Ann is the owner of the blog A Joyful Chaos. Mary Ann grew up Amish and shares many wonderful experiences of growing up plain on her blog.

    Together these two writers have created a new series all about what life is like as an Amish girl. The joys of a new baby brother. The adventures that Amish children find themselves in is fun seeing it all through Lilly’s eyes. Lilly lives on a small farm in upstate New York. She finds herself in a lot of mischief but she truly tries hard not to. What a great book!

    This is a great book for kids. It feels a bit like a collection of short stories that are all connected by an overarching story. It’s also a great way to introduce kids to the Amish culture.
