Painted Skies

Painted-SkiesLeslie is new to the Arctic, and no one told her there would be so much snow, and so many interesting things to see. Along with her new friend Oolipika, Leslie soon discovers one of the Arctic’s most unique and breathtaking natural wonders, the northern lights.

This contemporary narrative introduces young readers to an Inuit legend about the northern lights, followed by an epilogue that explains the science behind this amazing phenomenon.
