A Midsummer's Dance

Book Description
The lilting rhyme in this delightful picture book is an example of what is sometimes referred to as a mood poem. It recalls childhood memories of chasing fireflies on a summer's evening along with all the sounds that begin slowly at dusk and become louder as darkness falls, at last slowing to quiet. This short story is perfect for reading at bedtime as children drift off to sleep.

3/18/2011 Bill Kirk said: Imagine the dance and symphony performed by bugs and bog dwellers all on a summer evening. The sounds and flights build to a crescendo, then go quiet until the next midsummer's dance. Colorful illustrations by Clara Batton Smith bring Bill Kirk's story to life.
