Book Review: A Surprise for Lily
A Surprise for Lily is the fourth book in the Adventures of Lily Lapp series by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher. I have followed this series from the very beginning, and I have loved each and every book. As I'm reading each one, I think this is my favorite so far. Of course, I'm not sure I could really choose. There is no real reason why I'd ever have to choose a favorite! The first three novels in the series are: Life with Lily, A New Home for Lily, and A Big Year for Lily.
In this fourth book, our heroine is now 11! She is growing up so fast in many ways! Each book roughly covers a year of her life. And with multiple releases a year, time is flying by for our heroine! A Surprise for Lily follows Lily through fifth grade. The book still is her adventures and misadventures with friends, classmates, cousins, and brothers. And it wouldn't really be a Lily book if it didn't include a few scenes with Lily learning homemaking--cooking, baking, sewing, etc.
I just LOVE Lily. I love her family, her mother and father, and ALL THOSE BROTHERS. I really like seeing the world through Lily's eyes!
