Parent Takeaway

This is such a sweet, old fashioned series! Sure to be a favorite with tween girls as the main girl is always setting up the dearest and cutest little shops or houses, or schools etc. It is best to read them in order as they do build upon each other a little.

In this particular book, the Big Eight (eight wonderful friends) rent a lighthouse for the summer and enjoy swimming in the ocean, having clambakes and meeting new friends. Harold makes a startling discovery but after suffering from a concussion, will he remember what his remarkable find was?
