NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 10

Good Night, Firefly by Gabriel Alborozo. June 2015.

From Amazon: "Nina is afraid of the dark. Luckily she has a nightlight, but one night the power goes out. So Nina traps a firefly to keep her company. She has a jolly time with her new friend, until she soon realizes that the firefly doesn't feel the same way, and she must let it go.
This irresistible bedtime story has stunning black-and-white illustrations accented with glowing spots of color--as magical as fireflies themselves!"

My thoughts: Now that it's fall, firefly season is over here in Michigan. But my girls know what they are, and we loved driving by open fields late at night in summer and seeing them blink with light. Even though my girls have a night light in their room, they still go through evenings of "it's too dark! I'm afraid of the dark!" This book doesn't really hit on "you don't have to be afraid" -- there are plenty of other picture books out there about that -- but it is still a cute book that makes great use of black and white with highlights of color.

Recommended Age: 3-7 years
