Children's Picture Book: Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall

Book Description:
A lavish new picture book from Caldecott-winner Sophie Blackall that will transport readers to the seaside in timeless, nautical splendor!

Watch the days and seasons pass as the wind blows, the fog rolls in, and icebergs drift by. Outside, there is water all around. Inside, the daily life of a lighthouse keeper and his family unfolds as the keeper boils water for tea, lights the lamp's wick, and writes every detail in his logbook.

Step back in time and through the door of this iconic lighthouse into a cozy dollhouse-like interior with the extraordinary award-winning artist Sophie Blackall.

My Review:
When I walk along a sandy beach and dig up a sliver of sea glass or a pretty shell, I'm excited at my sweet treasure. That's how I felt when I discovered Hello Lighthouse. For years, I've admired the keepers of lighthouses and their stories. This delightful book ties those tales into a lyrical memory dedicated to all the men and women who saved many-a-ship from disaster. Sophie Blackall's gorgeous illustrations, along with her beautiful text make this a book to treasure. I borrowed this copy from the library, but I think I may have to purchase one for myself. Just to enjoy!
