Firefly July and Other Very Short Poems - Paul B. Janeczko, Melissa Sweet

From Emily Dickinson to William Carlos Williams, Paul B. Janeczko has gathered work by some of the finest poets to mark the changing of the seasons in this collection of “very short poems,” Firefly July (Candlewick, $16.99). Melissa Sweet’s evocative and whimsical illustrations match the poems beautifully, capturing the famous fog that “comes on little cat feet” and the glowing fireflies of the collection’s title poem. This is a book to be savored in little bits, or swallowed whole. However you approach it, it makes a wonderful and accessible exploration of the breadth of poetry’s capabilities for the earliest readers, and a reminder of the power of word and image for us all.  Ages 6-10.
