Overview

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

Chapter Excerpt


Chapter One

As the sun set a little firefly was born. It stretched its wings and flew off into the darkening sky.

It was a lonely firefly and it flashed its light searching for other fireflies.

The firefly saw a night and flew toward it.

But it was not another firefly. It was a lightbulb lighting up the night.

But it was not another firefly. It was a car's headlights flooding the night.

But they were not other fireflies.

When all was quiet, the firefly flew through the night flashing its light, looking and searching again.

A group of fireflies, flashing their lights.

Now the firefly wasn't lonely anymore.
