Under the Night Sky

CLASSROOM GUIDE

 

In UNDER THE NIGHT SKY, winter has a special beauty for those living in northern climates–even for those who live in cities. And winter nights can provide the most spectacular sights of all! To her son’s great surprise, a working, single mom breaks her routine one night and rushes her son downstairs to join their neighbors as they spontaneously celebrate the beauty of the northern lights–the aurora borealis. Nature is the central character in this story, and the spell it weaves provides this mother and son with a special moment they can look back on with great happiness.
