Follow along with six-year-old Lily as she navigates learning the importance of watching her younger siblings, the first day of school, and making friends (some nice and others not so nice). She will have you laughing and feeling compassion at any moment.
I have always been fascinated by the Amish and getting to read about their life from a child’s point of view was refreshing and interesting. I like how the series is based on the real-life adventures of Mary Ann Kinsinger.
My favorite scene in the book is when Lily’s Grandma Miller shows her how to make the Lily of the Valley flower change colors and compares it to the making of friends. A wonderful lesson for kids and adults.
Life with Lily is a perfect read-aloud book for your younger kids especially those interested in the Amish life.
