A short review for a short book! A very short book. I read it at work, on the reference desk, and it only took me about half an hour. Still, it was packed with pictures and information. I learned about a new-to-me firefly species (the Blue Ghost) and learned that there are year-round synchronous fireflies in southeast Asia, where my cousin lives. I'm a little jealous! (I live in the southeast US, and we only get about two weeks of synchronous fireflies each year.)
I got this book while on a camping trip with my family last year to see the aforementioned synchronous fireflies in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Not only do I recommend The Fireflies Book for any and all ages, I DEFINITELY recommend trying to go see the synchronous fireflies if you can! An indescribably awesome experience.
