Bug of the Week: Fireflies Book Giveaway

Today to celebrate Science Book Week let’s have something very different: a giveaway contest for a book about some fascinating insects, Fireflies by Mary Rose Dunn.

Fireflies is a new nonfiction picture book written at the first grade level. It has huge full-color photographs of fireflies. The text covers the life cycle, what fireflies eat at different life stages, what eats fireflies, and where they are found. This book is part of the Nocturnal Animals series.

If you would like to try to win a copy of Fireflies, leave a comment on this post before next Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 12:00 noon Mountain Standard Time. For a second entry in the contest, like the Growing With Science Facebook page (see right sidebar). Please leave a comment on this post first, however, with a valid email address so that I can contact you if you are the winner. The winner will be selected at random. The easiest way to leave a comment is to click on the title of the post to send it to a separate page and then scroll to the bottom.

The contest is now closed.

Do you see fireflies glowing at night where you live?

    I love fireflies. It is sad that we don’t have any here in Arizona. When we went back east in June, driving across the country, I first noticed them in eastern Oklahoma. I would love to win this book!

    We do during the summer! (North Alabama)

    I would love to win this book!

    We had lots of fireflies last summer at our back yard. It was so nice to watch my daughter ran after them. Hopefully, I get a chance to own this book. Btw, I love reading your website!

    I always know summer is officially when I can see the fireflies in the backyard! I love this website!

  6. Ingvild

    We have fireflies all over the fields here in the summer. It’s so much fun to watch them!
