Mary Ann Kinsinger & Suzanne Woods Fisher

Dear Librarian:

Did you know the Amish are not only big readers, but heavy library users?

Most everyone knows something about the Amish, but it's usually a Hollywood spin on the truth. The 'Adventures of Lily Lapp' series is based on the Old Order Amish childhood of Mary Ann Kinsinger.

Our first goal was to create enjoyable and entertaining books, but the series is a bigger story than that. Lily's life is a little known piece of Americana, true stories of a little girl raised in a very different culture. 

The 'Adventures of Lily Lapp' books are perfect read-alouds for children of all ages. An added bonus: boys are loving this series! Check out Lily's website,, for games, puzzles, downloadable coloring pages, to learn more about the Amish, and to ask Lily a question! For a chance to win a signed copy, e-mail me at

Thanks for sharing Lily with your readers,
