A Search for the Northern Lights 

By Elizabeth and Izzi Rusch

The northern lights, also called auroras, are gorgeous displays of color that light up the night sky.


Inspired by the authors’ own experiences and brought to life with stunning paintings, A Search for the Northern Lights brings readers along on a parent-child journey as they learn about auroras and how to find them – and marvel at the many wonders of nature.


This picturebook also includes a step-by-step guide for everyone who dreams of catching their own glimpse of the incredible northern lights.


"Lee’s acrylic illustrations show swirling Northern Lights and birch trees below bathed in deep purple and blue luminosity. Back matter provides further scientific information, along with a “Step-by-Step Guide to Aurora Hunting.”

VERDICT: "A STEM-worthy addition to collections."
