book discussion or read-a-loud. Beware, though, that death touches the lives of some of the characters, so there are somber moments in the book.
Firefly Hollow has simple sentences, larger text than typical juvenile fiction, and is beautifully illustrated. Black-and-white, small pictures are complemented with intermittent full-page, colorful illustrations that bring the story to life. I looked at the magical color illustrations many times over and think young readers will be drawn to them as well. Firefly Hollow reminded me a bit of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and Charlotte’s Web. This is a great story!
