We have been learning about lighthouses. Did you know that the tallest lighthouse in Africa is in Madacasgar and was built in 1932? We have made two ligthouses in school! I have been reading "The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge" and before that, I was reading "Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie." I liked "The Little Red Lighthouse" best because it has so many good words and things like onomatapia (like "flash" "s-s-s-salute" "chug chug cheerio" and "hoot") and personification (the lighthouse talks and the fog reaches down like a person and tries to clutch the boats).
