Author Richard Rensberry offered us several of his books to review. T has been playing with rhymes a ton lately, so we were optimistic about his rhyming books.
A lighthouse's functions are described in a poem.
Using rhyme and repetition, a narrator imagines what it might be like to be a lighthouse. Most of the vocabulary used is accessible to a young audience, but one of the final pages was a bit beyond T. Each page shows a different lighthouse, and being in Massachusetts, I immediately assumed that these were Eastern seaboard structures. About halfway through our first reading, however, I had to readjust my interpretation, as the Great Lakes were mentioned. I would like to know if these are specific lighthouses that we could find along the lakeshores. Regardless, this could be used not just for rhymes but also as a springboard for a lake or lighthouse conversation. Before our next visit to Lake Erie, we will have to read this and talk about what we might look for and see.
