I wasn't crazy about this book, because although at the end it tells children to release the fireflies, the entire time they are being treated cruelly. The illustrations are bland and dated. It is more of a scientific book than a bedtime story. It would go along decently with a science lesson.

This book brings me back to when I would catch fireflies (we called them lightning bugs) in a glass peanut butter or pasta sauce jar and watch them light it up like a lamp. It also saddens me to hear that according to the news that if things keep going on the way they are that these unique insects may be extinct in ten years.
