The Lights That Dance in the Night

by Yuval Zommer (Author)

The Lights That Dance in the Night
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

In the next picture book from the creator of the holiday hit The Tree That's Meant to Be, the northern lights bring wonder and joy to all the creatures who bask in their mysterious glow.

From tiny specks of dust to gleaming rays in the dark, the northern lights travel across the Arctic, uniting every creature in a celebration over land and sea. In this wonderfully festive picture book, Yuval Zommer imagines the northern lights' fleeting journey from space to Earth and how they weave a special magic for the animals and people living in the frozen lands below. With its heartfelt themes of kinship, curiosity, and the wonders of nature, it's a perfectly cozy story for families to read together.
