Synopsis by Alice Day
The Reading Rainbow series explores the pleasures of reading for youngsters from preschool ages through fourth grade. In this episode, young viewers learn about the importance of lighthouses as they hear the true story of a girl who kept the lights bright, guiding ships as a furious storm occurred. Sada Thompson is the narrator for the story, and LeVar Burton later takes viewers on a trip to the coast of Maine to check the workings of a real lighthouse. The program concludes with a trip in a 100-foot schooner for a visit with a family of sailors.
