Fireflies at midnight
Atheneum Books for Young Readers, Apr 1, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages
A robin cheerfully greets the day at dawn.
A horse nibbles grass under the heat of the midday sun.
A rabbit stands still, disappearing into the grass at dusk.
As evening falls, a frog tells the world that he's the king of the pond.
During one summer day, these and other creatures tell their tales, celebrating their ordinary -- but extraordinary -- lives in verse. Young readers will be entranced by the many voices created by renowned poet Marilyn Singer. They will be encouraged to look more closely at the surprising world around them -- morning, noon, and night.

This is an excellent book of animal poetry, much of it freeform. Poetry books aren't typically my thing but I had fun reading this one. I love the illustrations with their photographic undertone. Read full review
