This is the very first chapter book my kiddos have ever enjoyed! And by enjoy I mean we read each one 30 times everyday! My kids now want to participate in a pumpkin garden and constantly go on adventures! Seriously, these are incredible!
My 5 year old daughter LOVES these books! She wanted to read about Lily first, but I’d recommend reading Luke’s Adventure first because it talks about them being twins and answer some questions she was asking when reading Lily’s Pumpkins. Both were beautiful stories we’ve read many times now! I love the illustrations and that they are on every page.
I pretty much love any story that takes place by the sea, but these are sweet stories anyway. Great lessons, and engaging stories.
Luke plans a day of adventure and when none of his adventures work out how he hoped, he realizes he had MORE adventure than he’d even hoped for. Lily shares with a new neighbor, makes a new friend and is proven right that sharing does bring joy. I love the wise sentence of Lily, “I am sad that the pumpkins froze, but I am happy that I shared.”
Excellent for readers on their own, but they complement each other perfectly if read together too. My daughter said they should call the book about Luke, ‘Luke to the Rescue’ but that the real title is just as accurate. Both are excellent choices for independent reading, especially with the challenge words listed in the front.
Luke and Lily are twins living in a lighthouse on Firefly Island. Their adventures rescuing a sea turtle, bringing a lost kitten to its owner, growing a garden, and making a new friend bring this delightfully illustrated series to live.
The Luke and Lily of the Lighthouse series incorporates a variety of compound words and other literacy principles to reinforce and expand early reading skills. These sweet stories pair perfectly with the Luke and Lily of the Lighthouse: Compound Words matching game.
Luke’s Adventures 68 pages
Lily’s Pumpkins 72 pages
