A family experiences the magic of fireflies in this story of anticipation.
A young girl recalls a remarkable moment-how she waited patiently through a long, hot afternoon for night to fall so she and her family could make a journey to the top of a hill to see an amazing sight: a multitude of blinking, winking, twinkling fireflies lighting up a nearby mountain.
Readers will be able to hear the whistles of the bobwhites and smell the sweet clover hay in Thomas's richly detailed and lyrical prose. Illustrator Peter Sylvada's stunning illustrations beautifully capture the wondrous tone of the story and the expectant child's sense of awe as she looks at the fireflies dancing among the stars on top of Firefly Mountain.
