Florida Lighthouses for Kids by Elinor De Wire

Who invented the best lighthouse lens? What do the colors mean on lighthouses? Which Florida lighthouse is sometimes is mistaken for a rocket? Why did Seminoles set fire to Cape Florida Lighthouse? Why did a cat parachute off St. Augustine Lighthouse? Which Florida lighthouse wears colorful holiday lights? Where do Florida's skeleton lighthouses and spider lighthouses stand? When is Florida Lighthouse Day celebrated? How do Florida lighthouses run automatically? Florida Lighthouses for Kids answers these questions and more. A lively text, rich in pictures, details the history and lore of Florida's thirty-three lighthouses. From old Amelia Island Light to tall Ponce de Leon Inlet Light, from the battered sentinel at Key West to the sturdy brick tower at Pensacola, their stories unfold. Learn about the people who designed and built them. Meet some of the keepers who braved storms and suffered loneliness while tending their beacons.
