Under the Night Sky

Lundebrek, Amy. 2008. Under the Night Sky. Illustrated by Anna Rich. Tilbury House Publishers.

Under the Night Sky is a picture book story of a single working mom and her son taking time to be spontaneous and enjoy the wonder and spectacular beauty of the natural world around them. In this case, it is the northern lights--the aurora borealis--that they are enjoying together side by side. It is moments like these that make special memories, a life worth living. The illustrations by Anna Rich are nice. I love the colors and tones. They complement the text well. As to the text, I enjoyed it as well. The story was a good one--a mother and son seeing each other and the world in a new way, sharing these unplanned moments together.
