“Nightlights near, nightlights far, nightlights guide you wherever you are…” At night after the sun goes down, lights come out everywhere. From fireflies in meadows to owls’ eyes that catch moonlight; from lighthouses at sea to a thousand glinting city lights—follow them all on an enchanted nighttime journey that leads us home to bed. This poetic exploration of things that shine in the world—and in the sky—invites us all to see the night in wondrous new ways.
