Join KidLit TV’s own, Rocco Staino, for this podcast episode of Read Out Loud, as he reads the picture book classic, THE LITTLE RED LIGHTHOUSE. It’s based on the story of a real little red lighthouse that guards the shoreline of New York City. The story is a beautiful reminder that big or small, we all have special talents to share.
We recorded this episode of Read Out Loud in front of a live audience of picture book lovers during the KidLit TV Children’s Book Weekend on Governors Island.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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 grey 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!
