I give this book 4.5 stars because I think overall it had a lot of good information.  My favourite chapter was the one where the lighthouse keeper liked to use a skeleton to prank people.  I learned how important lighthouse keepers are and how they keep sailors safe.

I really enjoyed reading My House is a Lighthouse. It tells stories from different lightkeepers around Canada. I was really surprised to learn that there is only one lightkeeper left in the USA. I didn’t know much about lighthouses before I read this book. I learned a lot about what it takes to become a lightkeeper and how lots of people enjoy this job. Each lighthouse has its own chapter in the book. At the beginning, it says the lighthouse characteristics and the foghorn signal. There is always a photo or two, which I enjoyed seeing. The photos helped me see what the different lighthouses looked like. The rest of the text describes what the lighthouse is like and then the lightkeeper describes their life there. Reading this book made me think I want to live in a lighthouse!
