I was hesitant to buy this book after noting several of the poor reviews. But, really those reviewers seem to be making a mountain out of a mole hill. Yes, there is an illustration of a boy poking holes into a metal lid with a pair of scissors and yes he is holding them incorrectly but, really this page just allowed me to discuss with my son why he shouldn't hold scissors that way, what was the appropriate tool to use for such a job etc. I probably would never have had that conversation otherwise and yes he probably would have used scissors like that to poke holes into something and injured himself or not (like many of us have done as children ourselves). The story is really sweet and brought back some great memories for me of chasing and catching fireflies when I was younger. It is nice to see a children's book done in black and white for a change. The artist does a beautiful job capturing the moment. Easy read that my 4 year old asks me to read again and again.
I'm a first grade teacher and used this book as a mentor text to teach personal narrative writing and sensory details. It's a lovely book and is great for a sweet read-aloud.
Great story! As a teacher, every year, I teach my 2nd graders all about fireflies and this book is a great introduction.
Great book for teaching life lessons about containing what should be free.
A sweet story. As a teacher, I can imagine using this in my middle-school classroom to discuss storytelling with students. For elementary teachers, this would be a lovely story to read as the year winds down and the lightning bugs light up!
Reminded me of my youth in Ontario, Canada!
I wanted to introduce my grandkids who live in BC to these amazing beetles. They have never seen them!
This is a great little book dealing with the wish of all children to catch these "flashing lights" in an old mason jar, and subsequently realizing that they are their best when left where nature intended them.
I found a glow in the dark "Firefly t-shirt" to go along with the book!
love this book
This was an add-on price and so it was a very low price. And, it is a Beautiful Book! I am so lucky to have got if at such a great price! Buy if at any price, because you will definitely like it!!
