We love Early Readers that have additional value. Keep the Lights on, Abbie includes a little New England history, and a story about courage and perseverance. Great for children learning to read.
This Early Reader is set in coastal Maine during the winter of 1856 and is based on the true story of Abbie Burgess.
Abbie’s father is a lighthouse keeper and he has to travel by sea to get medicine for Abbie’s sick mother.
When a storm delays his return, Abbie must keep the lighthouse burning in order to guide the ships and bring her father safely home.
