"Night Of Many Lights" is the story of an Indian weather vane sitting high on top of a barn. It's a lonely job sitting there night after night, pointing out directions, with only birds for company. He longs to be free and be able to fly like fireflies, his wish is later granted. As he meets more weather vane friends, they all enjoy an evening visiting the Northern and Southern Lights and flying through the skies before it's time for them to return to the top of their barns.
The beautiful illustrations bring the story to life. Lakota names are used in this book assisting children in learning a new language. However, the most important lesson they will learn is, "Look for beauty and wonders all around you. Friends can always be found if you seek them out." One of my favorite things about reading is how I can go anywhere, see anything and do anything through words. Lindemer proves this in "Night Of Many Lights."
