MEG MEDINA: I waited up for a little while. I said, oh, nobody has called, so, you know, that's it. There's not much in the way of plot. Rather, the story shows the day-to-day life of a lighthouse keeper and--eventually--his family. We get to see the inside of a lighthouse and learn about the operation of it. We see the loneliness and the boredom, but also the excitement and danger that comes with the position. All of this is illustrated in beautiful pictures that evoke a sense of calm. I didn't see what the author tried to send to the young readers. If the point is to introduce a more dry explanation of lighthouses, maybe that works. But if we want kids to be interested and to have a story there, I think that it is not achieving the goal.The repetitive lines story was rather sad, and more than a bit gloomy at times, though it’s also sweet and has an ending that while not idyllic is pleasant and happy enough. Some might also love the story but this could have worked fine for me as a wordless or nearly wordless picture book. For young children I can see how the words might be lulling and entertaining. Families can talk about what it's like to live in a lighthouse, as shown in Hello Lighthouse. Does it look like fun or seem too hard? What might happen to boats if there was no lighthouse?
