Synopsis

As groups of Arctic animals gather on a hilltop to view the northern lights, this lively picture book demonstrates how to count by fives. "The concept of counting by fives gets visual treatment in a satisfying story that also introduces children to one of nature's most beautiful mysteries. . . . The singsongy text adds sparkle and the rainbow-colored spread depicting the northern lights is a fine surprise." -- Booklist
