    I read it to my grandchildren.

    When you live within two hours of this lighthouse, it is nice to have a story that you can show as well as tell the grandchildren.

    The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge

    This is a charming, old but timeless story which will enthrall everyone. My grandson loves lighthouses and he can relate to the George Washington bridge since he travels on it often.

    MY FAVORITE CHILDREN'S BOOK!

    I grew up in the neighborhood near the Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge. I worked for The Port Authority of NY&NJ for over thirty years, the last twenty spend in the Engineering Department (which built the George Washington Bridge in 1932). The Lighthouse and Bridge have always held a special place in my heart. When the Lighthouse was being considered for Landmark Status by NYC, my boss sent out a memo from the Bridge wishing the Lighthouse Good Luck! I was so proud when the Lighthouse did receive that Status. I always give this book to new parents for their child. It is a wonderful story of how friends working together can accomplish anything!

    Don't be mislead

    A great little book and must read for all ages. However, don't be mislead by the description or illustration, this specific book is NOT SOLD as a gift set with matching nightlight - you will have to see another listing for that!!

    SHINE ON

    There's no more fitting way to celebrate this classic little-lighthouse-who-could story than with a fresh coat of paint to match the restoration of the real Hudson River landmark. The melancholy story is experiencing a true-life storybook ending. Like this restored edition book, the real 1880 lighthouse was this year fitted with a new lens so it can shine once again when its beacon is lit for the first time since 1947. Now that's a happy ending worth sharing with generation after generation.

    A Cult Classic

    When I was in the first grade I remember reading this book. I could tell you everything about it down to the last word. Everytime I go in or out of the city, I look for that little red lighthouse. The book conveys a message within it's historical fiction base. The message is that no matter how small, one is always important. This novel should be read and still be read by children everywhere.
