88 posts | 57 read | 9 to read
A lavish new picture book from Caldecott-winner Sophie Blackall that will transport readers to the seaside in timeless, nautical splendor! Watch the days and seasons pass as the wind blows, the fog rolls in, and icebergs drift by. Outside, there is water all around. Inside, the daily life of a lighthouse keeper and his family unfolds as the keeper boils water for tea, lights the lamp's wick, and writes every detail in his logbook. Step back in time and through the door of this iconic lighthouse into a cozy dollhouse-like interior with the extraordinary award-winning artist Sophie Blackall.

July hasn't been great for reading--I can't stand The Stand, and I'm stuck with the unabridged version to get through for August bookclub in two weeks. Help!

Today I took a short trip to a nearby town that had nothing going for it at the seaside other than an adorable lighthouse and passageway via ferry to a popular island.

(No idea who the person is in my photo but they help with scale here.)

julesG That's a very cute small/short lighthouse. But I'm assuming it's on a cliff, so can/could be seen from sea. 2mo
CampbellTaraL @julesG I'll have to go back to find out more about it's purpose but this is located at sea level. Kind of odd the more I think about it. 2mo

This HF, RA Caldecott Medal book is the perfect blend of fact and fiction. It tells of life in a lighthouse through the eyes of a new keeper. This book‘s fun cutaway illustrations depict the keeper and all the activities he performs. #ucflae3414sp21

neanderc This book would be a fun way to teach your students about lighthouses through a RA! The link below takes you to the US Lighthouse Society‘s Kid‘s Corner and has activities for students to learn more!

DrSpalding This is such a beautiful book! I think I brought it into class and I‘m hoping this is what encouraged you to read this one. Did you click on the PDF of the coloring book in your resource? It is beautiful! This would be a fun activity to include any social studies or even science lesson! 1y
DrSpalding Not only did it win the Caldecott medal in 2019 but listen to this…”Hello Lighthouse received five starred reviews, and was named a best book of 2018 by People, the Boston Globe, Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, and The Horn Book. The New York Times, which named it a Notable Children‘s Book, praised, “I will be surprised if a more exquisite book will be published this year.” 1y

A beautifully illustrated Caldecott Medalist that imagines the life of a lighthouse keeper. All of the images are lovely and some are astonishingly striking; however, the prose, while interesting informationally, is not particularly riveting as a story.

This beautifully illustrated book is the winner of a Caldecott Medal. Hello lighthouse follows the story of the new light housekeeper that comes in. What I love so much about this book is its soft illustrations. my favorite being that showing all the different levels of the lighthouse and the work being put into it.

Written and illustrated by Sophie Blackall, this HF book is a Caldecott Awarding winner. This book follows the life of a lighthouse keeper. His daily chores, missing life at home with his wife, and some exciting and a little nerve-wrecking things along the way. The illustration in this book makes it a great book for a DR. This site links a read-aloud of this book https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/hello-lighthouse. #ucflae3414f19

#Movember Day 9: #LaIslaBonita reminded me of this Caldecott Medal book. Fats‘ review: the book “is a beautiful tribute to lighthouses and lighthouse keepers around the world. Written in verse, the book portrays the duties of a lighthouse keeper: tending the light from sunrise to sunset, sounding the signal to warn ships when it‘s too foggy, doing household chores, meticulously recording what happens each day in a logbook.” https://wp.me/pDlzr-k0t

This HF book follows a lighthouse keeper throughout the years. His life changes drastically as time goes by, but the lighthouse remains constant. The illustrations created by Sophie Blackall won her the 2019 Caldecott Medal. This book would be great for PR & RA. UDL 1.1, “Offer ways of customizing the display of information,” works here, because each page is so different than the last in terms of how the information is organized. #UCFLAE3414F19

JennaMichelleCohn ESOL strategy 42, “Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information,” would work well here because the story takes place over many, many years, and there are a lot of events that take place throughout these years. 3y
JennaMichelleCohn https://www.hachettebookgroup.com/landing-page/hello-lighthouse-educator-guide/ I really like this website, as it provides a great guide to having students get into the mind of a lighthouse keeper (or engineer) and use that creativity to write narratives and letters. 3y
Tinks I love lighthouses, but your brief synopsis reeled me in with wanting to read it. 3y
katiehamlin This book looks so good, I want to read it! The resource seems really good for this book. 3y
DrSpalding This is a beautiful, current award winner. There are so many resources for using this book in the classroom. The images are gorgeous and the story is a helpful reminder of the job of a lighthouse keeper. 3y

Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall is a RF Caldecott award winning book. It‘s a perfect story for IR and a must-have for your elementary classroom library. It tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his life in the lighthouse, but Blackall manages to write this book in the most beautifully captivating way possible. Your students will certainly enjoy this book, especially those with a love for the sea. #UCFLAE3414F19

karlasanabria1 The link below includes a Read Aloud video perfect to include in your lesson plan on Hello Lighthouse. https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/hello-lighthouse 3y
karlasanabria1 The UDL Guideline I would say fits best with this book is offer alternatives for visual information (1.3). While the ESOL Strategy I‘d use would be using group assignments, portfolios, learning journals, and non-print options as alternative assessment (48). 3y

Hello Lighthouse was written by Sophie Blackall and was published in 2019. This Caldecott award winning book feels like one of those books you read that makes you feel at ease. The almost sing song rhythm of the words of the book and the use of color calms the reader. I really enjoyed the use of the illustrations and colors to set the tone and convey the feelings off the page.

I would use this book in my classroom because it is great information about how lighthouses worked back in the day when they needed light keepers. It also has great information in the back of the book about lighthouses and why they are important.

This RF 2019 Caldecott Medal picture book is written and illustrated by Sophie Blackwell. Hello Lighthouse is about a man who is a keeper of the lighthouse and how he cares for the lighthouse, as well as how his life changes and evolves. The illustrations of this book will make you want to hop on a boat and find a lighthouse of your own.

karlasanabria1 This is such an amazing post, I love your picture! I haven‘t ready it but absolutely need to now that I‘ve read your post. The cover did just what you said it would, it made me want to “hop on a boat and find a lighthouse of my own”. Great job on the UDL Guideline and ESOL Strategy as well. 3y

This is a Caldecott winning book. It‘s a very cool book because of the lighthouse. The pictures are so fun to look at. The images of the waves are my favorite.
