Beschreibung

Abbie was afraid.

She had never had to keep the lights burning by herself. But many lives depended on the lighthouse, and Papa was depending on Abbie. This is the exciting true story of Abbie Burgess, who in 1856 single-handedly kept the lighthouse lamps lit during a tremendous storm off the coast of Maine.

"The Roops have done an excellent job of putting a fascinating tale into simple language. . . . Hanson's lovely watercolors evoke the mood and are far and away superior to what appears in many easy-to-reads."—starred, Booklist

    I'd swear that I've read about her before. This is good for younger readers, though I hesitate to call this full-fledged biography since most of it focused on one month of her life. The foreword was good though.

    This book is based on a true story about a little girl whose father operates a lighthouse. When her mother falls ill, her father must journey to the city to get her mother medicine. While he's gone, she must keep the lights burning and take care of her mother and young sister. Soon after he leaves, a terrible storm rolls in, preventing her father from coming home and she has to be brave and keep the lights burning all by herself for a month.This story is so amazing. And it's true. This happened in 1856. The little girl's strength is so admirable. Even though kids today might not be able to relate to the particular situation because of the time period, but they would probably understand the courage and resolve it took for Abbie to step up to be the mother of the family.

    This is a story about the bravery of a young girl whose mother is sick and her father has to leave to get food and medicine. And she is left in charge of the light house. A huge storm comes and prevents her father from coming straight back home. So each night Abbie has to keep this lights on in the tower and watch over the family.

    This is a sweet story and Abby is a good role model for other little girls.
