A favorite childhood activity—catching fireflies—glows from the pages of this story-with-a-counting-concept offering. “One, two, three, four, five. My jar’s like a light bulb that’s just come alive.” With rhyming lines that read like a song, It’s a Firefly Night chronicles the capture and release of fireflies, one by one, sparking the reader to count up to and down from ten. The book is capped off with a page of interesting firefly facts (they flash in rhythmic patterns to send messages!), adding a touch of accessible nonfiction to this charming, not-just-for-bedtime book. It’s a terrific gift, a great winding-down-at-bedtime selection, a lovely story for a parent and child to share. With glittering sparklers lighting up each page, any night can be a firefly night!
