Recommends it for: Christian lighthouse keepers?
What started as a very sweet, gentle story about life in a lighthouse just stopped as though the author ran out of steam. Add to that the intrusive insertion of a religious sub-plot that feels shoehorned in, and the whole tale was very disappointing. At least it was mercifully short.

I had to read this aloud for school years ago and now my youngest brother is reading it aloud to me for his school. Definitely one of my favorite younger-kids required reading books. Brings back so many memories :)

This is another book I had to read because I have a student reading it for a book report. It was a good and interesting story; I liked how they introduced the necessity to accept Christ as your savior and that good deeds and being a good person is nice but not enough.

Some of the compaints I have heard about this book it that it was too simple. I would agree. However, I do believe this would be a good read aloud to my kids.
We enjoyed this sweet book I bought at the Sally Clarkson conference last weekend. It was a quick read, sweet characters, and sweet story.
