This book tells the tale of two little bears, Aurora Mae and Borealis Burl, who awake in the night to discover that something amazing is happening in the sky above them–the grand and glorious northern lights stage a fantastic show as a sprinkling of friendly fireflies contribute their sparkles to light up the night in a way the two young bears have never seen before.

This book is a simple story about complex natural phenomena. The story reminds us that these "night lights" are out there, free for all who look for them, and that when we see them for ourselves, we can experience the same sense of wonder, delight, and reassurance that settles over Aurora Mae and Borealis Burl during this night of magic.
