A red lighthouse stands tall and proud on the Manhattan side of the Hudson River, protecting the boats with its bright lights. The red lighthouse felt big and proud of his important job. But then workers came and built a tall, gray structure that seemed to touch the sky. The little red lighthouse figures he isn’t needed anymore, not with the great bridge’s bright, flashing lights. But the little lighthouse soon learns that though he is small, he is still very important!
