Little Lighthouse

Little Lighthouse enjoys guiding boats away from the rocks until one night his light stops working. After his bulb is fixed, Little Lighthouse thinks nobody notices what he does and wonders if he should keep helping others. Through this story, children will learn to never stop doing what they love, or what’s right, even if their actions go unnoticed. Reading Little Lighthouse is an opportunity to discuss how our value doesn’t depend on external validation.
