New in paperback – with a glittering cover!

A great gift, or winding-down-at-bedtime selection, for grownups and little ones to share. Part glittery counting book, part endearing daddy-daughter story! A little girl enjoys a favorite childhood activity–catching fireflies–then lets them go one by one. This serves to engage the reader in counting up and then down from 10. Song-like rhyme pairs with glowing art to capture the magic of a firefly-lit summer night. Featuring a selection of interesting firefly facts and just added - suggestions on ways parents and educators can use the engaging story to keep the learning going. 

 It's a Firefly Night by Dianne Ochiltree
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It's a Firefly Night
This book is gorgeous. I just adored it. It was so sweet to read about a father and daughter making amazing summer time memories together. It was a tender story about warm summer nights and catching fireflies, but then letting them go in a very sweet way. Such a wonderful story that brought a smile to my face and warmth into my heart. The illustrations were charming and sweet. I loved the puppy so much among all the other brilliant pictures and details. It is a perfect book for summer and one I cannot wait to use in my classes! The kids will love it. This book is sure to become a new classroom favorite!!!!
