Life with Lily Book Review from 11 Year Old

This is a book I received for review but since it is for children, I gave it to 11 year old M, who read it and gave me some of her thoughts. I also skimmed through it and will tell you what I saw in it. Check out her review:)

For a child, every day is a thing of wonder. And for six-year-old Lily Lapp, every day is a new opportunity for blessings, laughter, family, and a touch of mischief. As she explores her world, goes to school, spends time with her family, and gets into a bit of trouble with her friends, Lily learns what it means to be Amish and what it means to grow up. From getting a new teacher to welcoming a new sibling, Lily's life is always full of adventure. 

The first of four charming novels that chronicle the gentle way of the Amish through the eyes of a young girl, Life with 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 charming illustrations throughout, this series is sure to capture the hearts of readers young and old.

M'S REVIEW-This is a book I really enjoyed. I learned a lot about the Amish way of life. One thing I found interesting was how the children think the teacher is mean but she is only strict. Can't wait to read the next one in this series!

MY THOUGHTS-Now, as you can tell, this is her first review of sorts so she wasn't sure exactly what to put in. I do have to say, she is 11 and read through this book in a day! She loves to read and when I gave her this book, she snatched it up:) This book is the first in the Adventures of Lilly Lapp series and I think it is a cute book to give children. They say for ages 8-12 and I think the ages might be a bit young as an 8 year old could have problems reading this but it depends on the child. It reminds me of a Little House type book but the children will be learning a lot about the Amish family. Good book to give children and would make a great gift! M. has put it on her shelf:)

Available October 2012  at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
I received a copy of this book for my review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
