Fly, Firefly

Shana Keller (author) Ramona Kaulitzki (illustrator)

Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press ISBN: 9781534166721

Based on an event witnessed by nature writer and ecologist Rachel Carson (The Sea Around Us and Silent Spring) where a firefly attempts to join its "family" in the ocean, this lyrical story written in verse perfectly illustrates the wonder and delight the natural world offers those who pay close enough attention. Back matter includes science facts about fireflies and bioluminescence, as well as information about Carson's life.
