The book “Amy’s Light” is the story about a girl named Amy discovering the magic of fireflies.
Cayden: “I liked when she got out of bed when it was dark out and looked out the window and saw all of the stars lighting up outside. Then I liked when she got a jar out of the cabinet and went outside and caught the fireflies! We see fireflies when we go camping with dad. I don’t think we have ever caught any though. We should bring a jar with us next time we go. That girl in the book sure caught a lot of them! My favorite picture was when she let them all go in her room!”
“Amy’s Light” by Robert Nutt is one of those books that takes you back to your childhood. I love the words on the opening page of the book: “It was a time of innocence. A time of ‘kick the can’ and climbing trees, of riding bikes and skinning knees, of endless days and porch swing nights, watching flickering dancing lights. It was a time to remember.” This is a wonderful book to share with that special young person in your life!
