Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall: Caldecott Winner!

Have you read this book yet?  It truly is beautifully illustrated!  I read it to my class the other day and it got two thumbs up!  I'm sure you'll want to read it to your class and linger over the illustrations but at least you can take a sneak peak here!

My students love the suspense of this book.  An excellent read aloud!


I always thought the Sea Chest should have won the Caldecott Award.  I had the author, Toni Buzzeo, at my school for an author visit.  If you are looking for an awesome author that teachers and kids will ADORE, she's the one!  

And if you are looking for a little something to support Hello Lighthouse with your class, you may want to check out:

Have a  lovely day!
