It's a Firefly Night by Dianne Ochiltree

Do you like fireflies?  You need to read this book!

Blue Apple Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this children's picture book (thank you).  It has been published, so check for a copy at your local bookstore.

This is a delightful picture book with illustrations by Betsy Snyder.  A little girl goes out on a night with fireflies and captures some in jar.  Before the end of the evening, she lets them go and waves goodbye.  The pictures and story are both charming.  If you have fireflies in your area, you might start this as a new family tradition at your home.

The last two pages in the book have facts about fireflies.  I learned a couple of things reading the little balloons of information.  Maybe you will, too.

If you're not fortunate enough to have fireflies in your life (like where I live), read this book, view the illustrations, and imagine...

Happy reading.
