I am a huge fan of Helen Wilbur's alphabet books, and B is for Beacon is no exception. This is a beautiful book full of information I certainly didn't know about lighthouses and the Great Lakes! What a wonderful and fun way to teach children a bit of Great Lakes history and geography. Did you know that the first lighthouse on the Great Lakes was established by the British in 1781? That the first known lighthouse was located in ancient Egypt? That the US Coast Guard now has responsibility for the Great Lakes lighthouses, and that you can visit, and even stay in some of them? I certainly didn't know any of this. There is much more the book teaches us, and I highly recommend it for children and adults of all ages! And buy it as a gift for the lighthouse lovers and Great Lakes sailors you know as well. They'll love it. A lovely read.
