All children need someone who will listen to them, support them, and protect them. This concept is metaphorically expressed in The Lighthouse, by Denise Akeroyd-Guillory, with a lighthouse representing a child’s primary source of support. Through engaging and fast-moving text and vibrant and relevant illustrations, the idea of a lighthouse and its parallel to children’s primary support network is presented in a straightforward and easily understandable manner. This book can be used by parents, guardians, teachers, mental health professionals, and anyone else in a helping profession to assess a child’s primary support person. In fact, The Lighthouse has been shown to be an effective tool for individuals of all ages in helping them to express the person or people who are their primary support resources, even though it is primarily a children’s book. Its message of the importance of support for each person is inspirational.
