The Night of Many Lights
by C.R. Lindemer
illustrations by Laura Redmond
Ne-Pah-Win, a Native American weather vane, is magically awoken from 100 years of sleep and is freed and transformed for a nighttime flying adventure. New friends are found on other barn rooftops, and together they fl y far and wide in all four weather vane directions. Set against a stunning backdrop of the northern lights and southern lights, this adventure – with its reassuring message of friendship – will become a bedtime favorite!
Upon opening the book I am met with a colorful description of the Northern and Southern Lights. On the opposite side is a wonderful legend of all the names used in the book. I love that the book opens with these things as it gives a quick glimpse of things to come.
This book is very creative. Weather vanes come to life and fly to all corners of the earth enjoying the scenery and their new friends. The illustrations are filled with colors of the night and are very relaxing to the eye. The images appear to pop right off of the pages allowing the reader to feel connected to the characters in the story.
This is a great book for bedtime as children will become mesmerized by the gentle flow of words and the serene nature of the illustrations.
