From Amazon: 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.
Having grown up and lived in Pennsylvania my entire life, this sweet story of a young Amish girl offers readers a peek into a lifestyle that is familiar to me, but a mystery to many. And at a time when shows like “Amish Mafia” are capturing the attention of so many television viewers, it’s refreshing to know that there is a side to the Amish story I can share with my daughter as she grows up.
Though Lily’s family is Amish, her fears about a new school and new friends, welcoming a new sibling, the joy of snowfall, and the fun of childhood are universal themes. My little one is too young right now for this book, but I will be adding the Lily Lapp series to our library and look forward to reading them with her in the years to come. I know they will spark interesting conversations with my daughter as she reads the series and sees the lessons Lily learns through her adventures.
