Meet Lily, a remarkable girl with a sweet story

In “Life With Lily” we see the world through the eyes of a six-year-old Amish girl named Lily.  We meet Lily as she is about to learn of the birth of her new brother.   Lily is inquisitive, smart and adorable.  Always willing to help, Lily takes care of her little brothers, helps her mother with the cooking and her father with the chores.  There is always an abundance of work on an Amish farm and a lot of people to help, both young and old.

The Amish life is one of simplicity and resourcefulness.   The Amish are simple people who know the value of life and family.  Lily’s story may be remarkable to those of us who live with grocery stores, modern conveniences and technology.  For all of these things which are supposed to make our lives easier, the Amish life seems much simpler and family-oriented.  Lily learns the important things and we see, through her eyes, the world as it could be.

Lily’s life is not always easy but it is filled with a love and family.  Lily’s adventures are heart-warming and a perfect story for children in the 8-12 age range.  Click here to learn more about Lily and her family and for games and information about the Amish.

  1. Hi Jill! Just popping by to thank you for being a part of the blog tour for “Lily.” It’s been a huge help — reaching the children’s market is a little tricky. We’re grateful for the exposure. Glad you enjoyed the book, too! Warmly, Suzanne Woods Fisher
