Enhance your purchase
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--a surprise sure to bring smiles to anyone who turn the final page!
Lushly illustrated with Eric Carle's trademark vibrant collage art, soothingly told with a gentle read-aloud rhythm, and complete with a surprise sure to "light up" children's faces, The Very Lonely Firefly will fast become a storytime favorite. Read it with a flashlight in the dark or under the table--and watch those fireflies glow!
Praise for The Very Lonely Firefly:
"Carle's richly hued, collage-like art and gentle text will be comfortingly familiar to his numerous young devotees."--Publishers Weekly
"This is a compelling accomplishment [and a] guaranteed winner as a read-aloud or read-alone."--School Library Journal

One day I watched two dog friends playing on either side of the fence, and pushing toys under the fence to share.
The dogs were having a wonderful time playing and running, with only a chain link fence separating them.
In the neighboring yards preschool and school age children had no one to play with or share toys.
As adults we need to consider how the coronavirus has affected us and work towards finding a solution to prevent this from ever happening again. International politicians need to research the cause and effect, to ensure we are ONE World. Eric Carle has a magic touch when writing books for children . Let us enjoy them together
You won’t go wrong ordering this for your little or to give as a gift for a little one.
Edit: I tried to replace the batteries and found that the book no longer lights up! What a total piece of crap!!!
