Fireflies in the Nightby Judy Hawes, Ellen Alexander (Illustrator)
"[In] a revision of the 1963 edition, [a] brief, clearly written text [tells of a young girl who] learns some interesting facts about fireflies from her grandfather. Alexander uses richly hued pastels for her illustrations of the young girl, her grandparents' farm, and the creatures of a summer night."SLJ.

This book brings me back to when I would catch fireflies (we called them lightning bugs) in a glass peanut butter or pasta sauce jar and watch them light it up like a lamp. It also saddens me to hear that according to the news that if things keep going on the way they are that these unique insects may be extinct in ten years.
