My Review
F is for Fireflies teaches young readers the alphabet using summertime items and activities.
Some examples are: D is for Daisy; J is for Jump rope; V is for Vacation. Each letter has its own beautiful color page and a word that starts with the letter and there is a little verse that goes along with the word. And throughout the book the young reader not only learns their alphabet they learn special things about God as well.
An example is:
I is for Inchworm
We spy an Inchworm,
a friend to be treasured.
Each step reminds us
God’s love can’t be measured.
What an awesome book for children. It is well constructed for the age group using colors that will capture young reader’s attention. The illustrations are adorable. I love the children and the animals, especially their precious faces. The font is perfect for a child’s book, and I love the shinny finish of the cover. Overall, I can’t say enough about the beauty and awesomeness of this precious little book. I love everything about it! My 2 year old niece fell in love with it and she brings it for me to read to her several times a day!
F is for Fireflies will make a wonderful addition to any library and would be a fun and colorful way to help teach children who are home schooled.
I received this book free from Zondervan to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.

Kathy-jo Wargin has created another alphabet book, this one titled F Is For Fireflies: God’s Summertime Alphabet. It’s much the same as her first book, K Is For Kite: God’s Springtime Alphabet, except the seasons are different. As with the first book, the author provides both a word and a short poem for each letter. All the letters in this book have something to do with summertime.
For instance, the letter “G” is for “Garden.” The accompanying text reads: “God made the Gardens, and we help them grow, weeding and watering row after row.”
The painted illustrations by Linda Bronson are done with bold colors, making them stand out. The pages are filled with illustrations of multi-cultural children.
What I Like: I like having a series of alphabet books about the seasons. The author has one for each season.
What I Dislike: For the most part, the rhyming text is done very well, but there are a couple of spots where it is a bit strained. As with the other book, the only thing I would add is a Bible reference of some kind for the text.
Overall Rating: Very good.
Age Appeal: 4-8
