The story is about a son losing his father at sea which is terribly sad to lose a parent and therefore in the right circumstances and for the right child this could be the perfect story for them and we will leave that for you to decide.
A stunningly beautiful children's hardcover book with elegantly drawn pictures and a decent amount of text on many of the pages. So you will be sitting there reading to your child for a little bit longer than most 32 page storybooks. A great book for children to include on their school reading list as they are just starting out reading. Highly recommended.
When Aiden's father goes missing in a storm at sea, the boy's mother tells him to light a lantern and put it in his window.
Aiden thinks this is to guide his missing father home - but could he be mistaken?
This is a beautifully written picture book about coming to terms with the loss of a family member.
