Frances is determined to make Christmas jolly for her younger brother, even if it means joining family on the mainland and leaving Papa behind on their isolated lighthouse island. After all, would Santa even know how to find them in this faraway spot? But when Christmas Eve is ushered in on a wild storm and Papa risks his life to rescue a drowning man, the children realize that the most important thing about the holiday is being together.
The Sea Chest
As they watch for the arrival of a long-awaited stranger, Maita tells her great-grandniece the story of her remarkable childhood. Living sheltered on a lighthouse island with only her parents for company, Maita would bake pumpkin pies, tend to the hens, spin stories, and long for a time when she might not be the only child the ragged island knew. And then one icy night, howling winds blew wave after wave against the shore, and from that fearsome storm came a sea chest--a gift that would change Maita's life forever. BKH20 $16.99

Lighthouses for Kid This book is noteworthy for the way in which the activities are related to the information in the text. The opening stories about keepers' kids will engage readers. Details of personal experiences, such as a "flying Santa," women keepers, and life aboard a lightship, appear in boxed insets. While making a lighthouse cake or a sponge painting is more fun than scientific, other projects demonstrate the science behind these structures. BKS17 Soft cover $14.95
