Diaries of Lighthouse Children

"I'm glad the lighthouse wasn't the keeper's home ... it was very cold ... there were photos on the walls that told us about ... shipwrecks ... We couldn't go into the tower, but I wasn't too disappointed ... that would be where a ghost would be hiding ..."When a little boy reluctantly travels from Arizona to Oregon to visit a lighthouse, he eventually realizes that the towers that light the way for ships are more fascinating than he ever imagined. In "Diaries of Lighthouse Children, " Janet Bauer shares a collection of tales that allows others to experience the history and beauty of lighthouses through the eyes of children.In this delightful compilation of six short stories that include fascinating facts about each lighthouse, a boy who wants to become a detective helps protect the lighthouse from vandals; a lonely boy befriends an American Indian boy and learns about whaling; and a bashful girl survives the terror of Tsunami wave to help others. As each child explores a lighthouse, each learns valuable life lessons that teach compassion, appreciation, and the importance of treasuring family memories."Diaries of Lighthouse Children" is a perfect companion for anyone captivated by the history behind lighthouses.
