The Lighthouse Keeper: The Lighthouse Keeper's Picnic

Oh yum: a scrumptious seaside picnic made by the best cook in the world. Go on: tuck in! Summer reading doesn’t come better (and this picture book is great for sharing, too). One to enjoy with a picnic on the beach, or even sitting at the foot of a lighthouse. Imagine a small white cottage perched high on the cliffs. A red-and-white lighthouse you can row to in a little boat each day. And lots of yummy treats to enjoy at the village picnic. Does that sound like bliss? It’s the Lighthouse Keeper’s life. And he’d like to tell you all about it.
