Description


When a very lonely firefly goes out into the night searching for other fireflies, it sees a lantern, a candle, and the eyes of a dog, cat, and owl all glowing in the darkness. It even sees a surprise celebration of light. But it is not until it discovers other fireflies that it finds exactly what it's looking for.

Read it with a flashlight in the dark or under the table--and watch those fireflies glow!

This hardback edition childrens book is beautifully written and boldly illustrated by Eric Carle.

Why Our Experts Love It


Who didn't love catching fireflies growing up?

We love this childrens book because of its simple text and vibrant illustrations. Your little one will love to look at the glowing images in the soft darkness of his/her room.

A little bit about Eric Carle because we like him so much; He was born in 1929 and moved to Germany when he was six. He went to a prodigous art school and then got his first job at the New York Times. One day, a respected educator and author, Bill Martin Jr, called Carle to illustrate a story he'd written. The result . . . Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you see? . . . and as they say, the rest is history. Since then, Carle and Martin have sold millions of books worldwide


  • A great way to spend quality time with your child is reading to them and this should begin when they are infants.

  • Exposing children to books at this young age is the first step to peaking their future interest in reading.

  • Rhyming, recognizing first sounds in words, and syllable awareness are all phonemic awareness skills your child has before they are ready to start reading.

  • We do not often think of reading when it comes to our toddlers, but they start hearing about the ABCs in songs and begin gaining letter recognition starting at around 2 years of age.

  • Most children will begin to read between the ages of 5-6 years. But before they can read they need to gain the foundation of pre-reading skills.
