Miss Colfax’s Light

After reviewing North Woods Girl, I was able to get in contact with Aimee Bissonette. She shared with me her newest book, Miss Colfax’s Light. This is based on a true story about a woman taking care of a light house on Lake Michigan. They add another light and she still takes care of it.  You learn a lot about how hard it is to take care of lighthouses.

There are a lot of lighthouses on the Great Lakes. I like to visit them, except when there are stable flies trying to make me food for them. I like to imagine what it would be like to live at a lighthouse. It would be a lot of walking and carrying and probably not a lot of sleep. I need my sleep so probably not a good job for me.

I hope to go visit the area where Miss Colfax’s lighthouse was. It would be really neat to see, even though her light is not the same anymore. The book is a great history book and would be good for kids who are curious about lighthouses and the people who take care of them.

Tomorrow, author Aimee Bissonette shares how she became an author and how she writes.

  1. There is more coast line around Michigan than Florida.know that. There are lighthouses that are bed and breakfast places so people can live in a light house for a day or a few days. One is the Big Bay Point Bed and Breakfast on Lake Superior. I like that this author wrote about an important piece of Michigan’s history.
