Lighthouses for Kids by Katherine L. House

Bringing to life an era when rivers, lakes, and oceans were the nation's highways and lighthouses served as traffic signals and maps, this comprehensive reference provides children with an in-depth history of lighthouses and firsthand stories of the challenges faced by lighthouse keepers. Filled with engaging activities such as learning how to tie a bowline knot and building a model lighthouse, this unique book also includes a field guide to U.S. lighthouses, places to visit, a time line, glossary, websites to explore, and a reading list for further study.

Katherine L. House is a freelance writer who has contributed to The New York Times, The Washington Post, FamilyFun magazine, FamilyTree magazine, and the New Jersey Lighthouse Society's newsletter. She has visited more than 100 lighthouses in the U.S. and Canada.

Independent Publishers Group®, or IPG, was founded in 1971, as the first organization specifically created for the purpose of representing titles from independent presses to the book trade. Then as now, small and mid-size publishers had great difficulties selling their books effectively. The obvious solution was to group a number of independent publishers together for selling and order fulfillment, thereby creating a list that could compete on equal terms with those of the large houses.

IPG was successful from the start and has maintained an unbroken record of growth and financial stability. In 1987, IPG was acquired by Chicago Review Press (CRP), an independent publisher founded at about the same time as IPG.
