Firefly Mountain by Patricia Thomas, illustrated by Peter Sylvada

A family experiences the magic of fireflies in this story of anticipation, marked by stunning illustrations, a lyrical text, and a deep and thoughtful connection to the natural world. 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.
