Lately Lily: The Adventures of a Traveling Girl by Micah Player

Release Date - March 25, 2014

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

It seems that Lily has been everywhere. With her parents traveling around the world for their jobs, Lily accompanies them to every corner of the globe. She's traveled by plane, boat, and even hot air balloon, and seen cities like Paris. Join Lily on her adventures around the globe, making friends along the way.

Lately Lily's illustrations drew me in. They're colorful and do not make it immediately obvious where Lily is now. Children and their parents will need to use some of the clues to figure it out. I can see that becoming a fun game to play while reading Lately Lily.

The story itself is ideal for a beginning reader. There are some challenging words, but not too many, and pages often have just one short sentence, so children will not feel overwhelmed as they read each page.
