To the Lighthouse!
They've been around for 300 years, standing as sentinels along the shorelines of America. And although the lighthouses of this land are no longer quite so vital as they used to be for the mariners of the open seas, many are still in operation and have become a much-loved and integral part of this country's heritage.
New Jersey is blessed with 11 land-based lighthouses, with another three on the Delaware Bay. This charming book, featuring illustrations of the state's magnificent beacons by renowned artist, Donna Elias, answers questions that many children ask: What IS a lighthouse? And why should we care? TO THE LIGHTHOUSE! is an essential keepsake for any child who is fascinated by the seas and those majestic sentinels that watch over them. Written by Steve Murray.
