Among a Thousand Fireflies is a children’s book written by Helen Frost and Rick Lieder. It is recommended for ages 3-7 and 32 pages long. This is a great short story releasing March 8th, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon!
How can a firefly find the one, among so many? Exquisite photographs and poetic text evoke a sense of mystery and magic.
On a summer evening, just as the stars blink on, a firefly lands on a flower. Lights start to flash all around her — first one, then three, seven. Hundreds. Thousands. How will she find just one flash among them? And will he see her flash in return? In evocative photographs and lyrical language, Rick Lieder and Helen Frost, creators of the critically acclaimed Step Gently Out and Sweep Up the Sun, offer a true story of how two fireflies come together after finding each other’s light among thousands of others.
Among a Thousand Fireflies is a story on how fireflies find each other. The book is short and cute. I love how it uses real life imagery throughout the book. The pictures are beautiful, and so is the story told with it.
It’s a little odd to me on how fireflies connect and why we would be telling children, but I suppose it makes a great love story. It’s always nice to peek into the world of other creatures. We truly don’t know how hard it is sometimes being so small in a big world and we often forget that it can be wondrous.
The last page of the book gives a lot more details on the Firefly world and how they meet up together. Overall, a beautiful book on fireflies and the way they connect. I guess in a way, it’s almost similar to humans. We’re all looking for the one Among a Thousand Fireflies.
