Fireflies in the night (Let's-read-and-find-out science book) by Judy Hawes



The book "Fireflies in the Night" was a good introduction to beginning science for pre-schoolers because it uses a familiar phenomenon, the firefly, to teach about the concept of cool light as opposed to warm light. It was simply written to inform and not overly complex for the pre-schooler it was intended for, who is a curious 4-year old girl. She lives in Southern California and wanted to know about fireflies, which are not ordinarilly found where she lives. There are other books listed on the back cover which appeal to the young and curious scientist and are also worthwhile

We love the Let's Read and Find Out Series. This book is great at explaining the mystery of lightening bugs without being too technical. We used this book along with Fireflies by Julie Brinckloe and then spent an evening collecting fireflies and letting them go. Great activity for a five year old.

Great book for teaching my students and using in readers workshop.

There is a lot of science-background in this book, but it will never bore young children! It's the best book around about fireflies, and I bought it for our grandson who lives in California and doesn't see fireflies except when visiting in the East Coast. Wonderful story and lovely illustrations, a real keeper!

This is a very simple book for younger kids. I was expecting it to be more of an indepth story. It was very simple, but did teach about fireflies.

A different more adventurous story for young children. This is a lot more intriguing than other books. Nice contrasting colors in the illustrations
