My daughter enjoyed this one more than I did, so the rating reflects her reaction. She really enjoyed this glimpse into what it might have been like to live in a lighthouse 100 years ago.

Recommends it for: lighthouse keepers

This is a story of a family living in a lighthouse. It's set in winter, which isn't how I picture lighthouses. But it's a good reminder that there were people living there year-round, and it's interesting to see what a homestead must have been like. But it's based on family photos of lighthouse keepers that were found in a historical society.

The tale is told in rhyme. The accompanying illustrations are light in color and a little hard to make out. Not great for a bedtime story in my opinion.

What the Five-Year-Old Thought: "I really liked it. It was about how it was to run a lighthouse 100 years ago. He had to put all his livestock away for the snowstorm."

What Mommyo Thought: "A cozy read. Not really a detailed essay on how to run a lighthouse, but rather an idyllic picture of what it might have been like to be the child of a lighthouse keeper on a snowy night in Maine."
