Item description for The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge by Hildegarde Hoyt Swift & Lynd Ward...

A little lighthouse on the Hudson River regains its pride when it finds out that it is still useful and has an important job to do.

Publishers Description
On the Manhattan bank of the Hudson River, a small lighthouse--made of steel and painted bright red--proudly protects boats with his faithful beam. One day a great expanse of gray steel, which also shines a bright light into the fog and darkness, is built over it. The little red lighthouse feels insignificant and useless in comparison but soon learns that . . . small can be mighty

Reviews - What do customers think about The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge?

The little lighthouse with a big job.  Apr 3, 2008
This book is about the old and new working together for the good of all. The lighthouse is so proud that when a big bridge is built is feels to inadequate to do its job. In the end they both have an important place. Recommended for ages 5-7 years.
A treasure  Oct 28, 2007
I read this book as a child, and loved watching for the lighthouse as we drove along the HH Parkway. I'm delighted that the original version is back in print.
Great book  May 7, 2007
This is beautiful book with a fun story that my almost 4-year-old son really enjoys.
What a great story for little guys and girls  Mar 9, 2007
I was given this book by a friend at my shower. My little boy is now 2 1/2 and this book is in the regular rotation of stories. I chose to read this book to my sons class and gave each of them a copy for their libraries. It is a great story about how size doesn't matter and that even the littlest lighthouse has a very important job. Some fo the language is a bit dated, but otherwise, the story is current for today. By the way, we will be touring this little light house under the George Washington Bridge this coming Spring -as testament to its importance, it still stand there today.
The Little Red Lighthose and the Great Gray Bridge  Sep 29, 2005
Anyone who loves lighthouses will love this book. I Love the way the author makes the Lighthouse, Bridge, and boats come to life as though they are talking to each other, and how important Lighthouses are to navigation.
