For ages 3 to 6.
Imagine a snowy winter evening on a distant island a hundred years ago. Despite the icy cold, the lighthouse keeper and his family are warm and secure in their home, a bright center of warmth within a vast, dark bay. How comforting it must have been for a young child to know that, all around the island, every creature was settling in for the night: the farm animals in the barn, the wild creatures in their burrows, and he himself in a warm bed, watched over by loving parents.
In soothing cadences and exquisitely rendered illustrations, Kelly Paul Briggs carries readers of all ages to that wonderful moment when it’s time to pull up the covers and look forward to a contented night’s sleep and a bright new day.
“This pleasing period portrait should have considerable appeal for sea lovers everywhere.” --Publishers Weekly
