Judith Hawes is a former special education teacher. In additiion to Why Frogs Are Wet she has also written Fireflies In the Night for the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. She resides in Glen Rock, NJ.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- Hawes's first-person narrative is a revision of the 1963 edition (HarperCollins). Alexander uses richly hued pastels for her illustrations of a young girl, her grandparents' farm, and the creatures of a summer night. While visiting the farm, the girl learns some interesting facts about fireflies from her grandfather. The colorful drawings and appealing cover represent the major changes in the book; the original edition featured a young boy. The brief, clearly written text is thorough enough to satisfy its intended audience. Julie Brinckloe's Fireflies! (Macmillan, 1985), for the same age group, is a softly illustrated, very readable story of a young boy catching fireflies with his friends at dusk. Joanne Ryder's Fireflies! (HarperCollins, 1977) is by far the most informative easy-reader on the life cycle of this unusual insect. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
