About the Book:
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.

My Thoughts: What a charming book! I have a granddaughter named Lily, so when I saw this book I just had to read it. My Lily is just two, so the character Lily actually reminds me of my oldest granddaughter Nani who is 4. All bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and ready to take on the world. She is the oldest, her mom just had her baby brother Dannie, Lily's reaction to Dannie was priceless . . page 15 . . . Lily peeked at the baby. Why, it was the ugliest little baby Lily had ever seen! His face was all red and wrinkly. His head was bald. Lily didn't know what to say as Papa lifted the baby carefully out of Mama's arms. He asked Lily to sit in the rocking chair next to the bed.
I was laughing so hard when I read that I nearly wet my pants. As adults we OOO and AHH over new baby's but we have no idea what little children are thinking.
Lily has many new experiences, from helping her father plant a garden, take care of the animals, going to school where there is a new teacher.
The age range is 8-12, however this would be a great read aloud at bedtime for kids younger. There are sketches that are in the book, much like what you would find in the Little House On The Prairie series.
