Firefly Nightby Carole Gerber, Marty Husted
After listening to this peaceful lullaby, children will drift gently off to sleep with visions of the nighttime forest. A young Chippawa girl asks her glowing friend, Wah-wah-taysee, the firefly, to guide her through the darkened forest to her cradle and to her dreams. Readers will share the little girl's sense of wonder and respect for nature as she and Wah-wah-taysee explore the forest and greet the animals of the night. The wolf, the fox, the owl, and others meet them along their path. Then, after seeing her safely home, the firefly softly glows in the child's dreams of the nighttime forest. Marty Husted's warm color pencil and watercolor illustrations enfold young readers and listeners in velvet comfort. The darkened forest and the nighttime animals are beautifully detailed in the pages of FIREFLY NIGHT.
