Evocative photographs meet gentle, simple prose in this third collaboration between Frost and Lieder, this time focusing on the mating of fireflies. Lieder captures the quiet softness of dusk, moving into a night lit by glowing flashes of light. Frost’s prose evokes the essence of the search for a mate throughout the summer night. “Across a distance wide and dark, she looks out from her flower and sees — Light. Dark. Light. Dark.” Backmatter explains that each female firefly emits light in a specific pattern, waiting for a male to respond with the same pattern. This book chronicles the fireflies’ journey: Among the thousand lights, somehow these two find each other. A lovely addition for grade two Small Crawling and Flying Insects, and for all those who find the miraculous in nature.
