Nov 30 books read

awesome read

The Lightkeeper by Susan Wiggs
Fantastic story about a man Jesse Morgan who operates the light house at Cape Disappointment. It's a tricky section of the coast in the northwest.
He has already lost his wife and their unborn son and is a hermit, keeping to himself until one day he rescues a pregnant woman and tends to her health.
Over the months he learns about her Irish upbringing and who the father is. She learns his secrets as well.  He births the child and she says it's their son.
When he returns one day after chores and finds that his sister in law has been to the cottage and now everybody is gone. He tracks Mary and her son David to the vessel that the coast guard had not even sanctioned seaworthy.
His sister in law and her husband Granger-the boy's bio father are in the vessel as well and he knows what he has to do to safe the women and child. He vowed never to turn the light off at the lighthouse...
Loved hearing the story of how in the 1850's they would use horses and stallions to rescue people on the shores. Loved the ending and learning about antique light floats.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

Bubbles Day by Ally Nathaniel
This book reminds me of the time we spent with our grandson this summer and we did make bubbles. So fun to be able to act like a kid again.
Illustrated very colorful children's book about bubbles. The girl is named Bubbles.
You get to play a guessing game what bubbles likes and on the next page it shows you what was suggested.
When you find out what bubbles likes the best it is shown how to do it and what makes it so fun.
I like this book because it reminds me of my grandson and how he loves doing step by step instructions.
 I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

My Snow Day by Ally Nathaniel
Illustrated very colorful children's book about a snow day.
Gabbi, Abigail and Adam wake up and notice all the snow and collect all their clothes they will need to go outside.
When they get out there they all stick together and help one another to do some fun things, even make a snow woman.
They are very proud of what they did, together. Very simple concept for kids to grasp.
I like this book because it allows the child to image a day outside even when there is no snow yet.
Author's other works are highlighted at the end of the book along with her bio.
