Review: Baa! Neigh! Come on over to the Lapp family's Amish house and farm, in Pennsylvania. A New Home for Lily by Mary Ann Kinsinger is the second book in a series that features Lilly Lap as the main character.
Lily is an Amish girl that lives with her Mama, Papa, and her brothers Joseph and Dannie. She just moved from New York to a small farm in Pennsylvania. The book tells about how they live their lives on their newfound farm home. On their second day at the farm, Lily goes to a new school. She meets a mean girl named Effie, a kind girl named Beth, and a very annoying boy named Aaron. As Lily goes to school, the weather changes and the holidays come and go. Soon, she gets a special surprise, a new baby brother named Paul. As she grows up, many different things happen to her. Papa falls off the roof, she makes gray Jell-O, and he cousin moves next door. What happens next, that's for you to read. The many adventures that Lily has never end!
I really liked A New Home for Lily! It is a must read book for girls ages 8-12. It has family, love and fun on the farm! It begins with the Lapp family moving to Pennsylvania and then stories about how they live their life afterward. It is a pretty big book with around 260 pages, but is an easy read. If you like Little House on the Prairie and like playing house, you will love this book! It has a few pictures every page so you can picture what's happening in your head. It is not a good book for boys, because a girl named Lily is the main character. I hope there is another book coming out in this series, but I can't promise anything. You should read and love this book.
