Publisher's Description

F is for Fireflies is written by award-winning prolific children’s author, Kathy-jo Wargin. This beautifully illustrated book explores God’s warmest, wonder-filled season from A to Z, by delighting young readers with beaches and sandcastles, picnics and lemonade, and all of the blessings that God’s summer brings.

Author Bio

When Kathy-jo Wargin was a young girl, each night after dinner, her mother let her choose between washing the dishes or writing a poem. Before long, she decided that if she grew up to be a writer, she wouldn't have to do any dishes. She has since learned that even though she has published more than twenty award-winning books for children, she still has to wash the dishes. Kathy-jo lives in Minnesota with her husband and her son.

Filled to overflowing with bright, eager, child-like illustrations, F is for Fireflies is an eye magnet. Children will laugh with enjoyment as they watch the happy antics of the children in this alphabet book: splashing in puddles; enjoying an inchworm; building sandcastles. Moving page by page through the alphabet, each letter is accompanied by the fun it suggests and a paean to the God who provides it.

In F is for Fireflies, award-winning, prolific children's author Kathy-jo Wargin adeptly shares her joy in rhyme and rhythm, summertime, and the Lord. The vigorous, hop-off-the-page illustrations of Linda Bronson help the narrative dance across the pages. With F is for Fireflies, Zonderkidz adds another winner to their long list of happy, useful Christian children’s books. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Editorial Reviews

Wargin continues her series of seasonal alphabet books (K Is for Kite: God's Springtime Alphabet, 2010, etc.) with this exploration of summertime delights interwoven with a religious message. Each page includes the traditional format (“B is for boat”) in large type along with two or four rhyming lines in smaller type and a relevant illustration. God is included in the text in simple, relevant ways (“God calms the seas”), and there is no mention of Jesus, so the book could be used by a wider audience than just Christian readers. The rhyming text reinforces concepts of kind and cooperative behavior as well as presenting God as a powerful and loving force in the natural world. The references to God in the text are not preachy, and not every page mentions God, so the religious content flows naturally within the story. Bronson's vibrant, jazzy illustrations in ripe-fruit shades are filled with sunny skies, imaginative flowers and flowing lines that suggest the lively nature of happy summer days. The pictorial story follows a family and its spotted dog as they take part in traditional summer activities, but the illustrator makes this ode to summertime soar. Her paintings are filled with motion and bright colors, with children who look like they must be laughing and having a great time enjoying the outdoors. A sunny celebration.
