Time to Slow Down Kiddos

Preparing for Grandbabes week is on my mind.  I have many ideas floating around already.  But I need some things to make quiet times.  You can only run and play for so long before you tire out.

Now I have a special book for my Granddaughter.  She loves to read and at 9 years old I think that A Big Year for Lily by Suzanne Fisher Woods is perfect.  Sorta a cross between the start of Little House on the Prairie books and jump up from the Beatrix Potter books.  Perfect for beginning on chapter books and innocent enough for young girls.  Suzanne you need a series for the boys next.  I know that this is the second Lily Lapp book that I have read.  But the first I am passing down to my Granddaughter.  The first one I shared with the school library.

Thanks to the Litfuse Chicks for sharing this book with me for review.  I have also posted on Amazon as well as their site for this book.


Book Three in the Adventures of Lily Lapp series. Co-written with Mary Kinsinger.
Lily Lapp’s family has settled into their new home in Pennsylvania, but life still holds big changes and big steps for Lily. Good changes, like once again living close to her beloved cousin and best friend, Hannah. Bad changes, like a mean girl who plays tricks on her. And no change at all where Lily would most want one–Aaron Yoder sits near her in school and relentlessly teases her. Surprises are in store for Lily as she learns, with Mama and Papa’s help, to manage the ups and downs of growing up Amish.
The third of four charming novels that chronicle the gentle way of the Amish through the eyes of a young girl, A Big Year for Lilygives children ages 8-12 a fascinating glimpse into the life of the Amish–and lots of fun and laughter along the way. It combines Mary Ann Kinsinger’s real-life stories of growing up Amish and the bestselling writing of Amish fiction and nonfiction author Suzanne Woods Fisher. With charming line drawings in each book, this series captures the hearts of readers young and old.
Learn more about the series, play games and download the coloring sheets at the Lily website.
