RA FEATURED BOOK OF THE MONTH: MARCH
 
 
This Month’s Featured Book—brought to you by the librarians at the Ridgefield Academy library!

The winner of the Caldecott Medal (for illustrations) for 2019 is a remarkable book entitled Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall. Delightfully detailed illustrations give us a peek into the hidden world of the lighthouse keeper and his family. Students will pore over pages depicting the inside of the lighthouse, powerful weather, and a dramatic rescue, and the passage of time. The story is bittersweet at the end when technology takes over and the lighthouse keeper is no longer needed. Goodbye lighthouse. At the end of the book, there is an interesting account about lighthouses and their keepers. All ages.
