This book introduces very young children to Inuit culture and to the Northern Lights. Very unusual illustrations.
A lullaby/goodnight song (think: Goodnight Moon) that is Alaskan in feel. The elements are personified in text ("Grandpa Mountain") and also in the illustrations.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a sweet, soothing book that evokes the wonder of nature and the mysticism of the native people of Alaska. The illustrations are muted and we loved the images of the northern lights. It's a great book to read at bedtime and we really enjoyed reading it together.
