“I think of the lighthouse, the moon and the stars – all the sea lights that guide us home,” says little girl tucked in bed when their night journey is over. Girl with her dad, a fisherman, was at sea that night. Their red boat was guided by starlight, moonlight, a lighthouse beam and later on land they were guided home by streetlights and a candle.
“Sea Lights” by Ruth Symons and Carolina Rabei is a magical seaside storybook, where pictures move. Readers can turn a wheel to make a lighthouse work, or open a cardboard page and see how dolphins jump in a moonlit sea. This is an irresistibly beautiful book that makes you wonder what lights guide you in the dark.
Thank you Hugh for donating this magical book to the youngest readers of the Sea Library.
You can borrow “Sea Lights” from the Sea Library together with “Under the Stars: A Journey into Light” by Matt Gaw and read also how Adam Nicolson sailed at night navigating by stars.
