Book 1 in the ‘Adventures of Lily Lapp’ series.
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.

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 book is labeled as suggested reading for ages 8-12, but I think it would make a great book for a parent or teacher to read to children even as young as two or three. Each chapter has easy to read and understand language, and is short enough to hold the attention span of even a toddler.
This is the first book I’ve ever read of a former Amish person, Mary Ann Kinsinger of A Joyful Chaos, sharing her life as a child. Those memories of her childhood are precious and special and represent the Amish life perfectly. Thank you Mary Ann for sharing your stories with us!
