How have I never read this classic picture book before now
I absolutely love the end of this with the light up part showing all the fireflies it was a pleasant surprise and the kiddo loved it.
My son liked this one and I hated it He had like a gazillion million questions while we were reading it which is the last thing I want to do when I m trying to get a talkative rambunctious toddler to go to sleep So it s definitely a daytime book when I m ready for so many questions

We got this from the library, so the ending wasn t as cool as it is meant to be They either didn t put batteries in it, or they have died So we didn t get to see the fireflies all light up.But the story itself was still fun as we follow a lonely firefly trying to find a friend I liked the repetition to the story and all the different ways that we use light in the world My daughter really enjoyed this too and she would have LOVED if the fireflies lit up at the end We own the Very Quiet Cricket wh [...]
The Very Lonely Firefly is about belonging We all want to belong to a group, a family, our own fellow creatures This book includes another very cool element brought to the book by Eric Carle In the end, the fireflies light up which is a cool element to show the kids Also, helps kids stay interested in story time when there are cool things going on.
a lonely firefly was in search of a friend Each time he saw a light it ended up being something else other than another firefly but he didn t let that deter him He continued on until he did find his family.
Very nice I m not sure board book is the beeeest format for this, but it s probably one of the only ways to easily allow for the surprise at the end.Good story, though not my favourite of Carle s It was kind of fun to guess what happened next, though
Genre Children s Picture BookUnique Feature Light up fireflies on the back page of the story Grade Levels Up to 2nd grade
perfect book for summer since Norah is amazed by fireflies right now and of course both girls love when they light up at the end of the book.
Switch off the lights, to see the fireflies, brings back memories of catching fireflies as a child.
The illustrations have the wonderful Eric Carle flare but the story falls flat.
I like this book because it is a great story about a poor firefly who keeps getting deterred from finding his friends until in the very end, he finds them.
I love this book, primarily due to the inspired ideas of the lights at the end of the board book Even I had a little intake of breath
Simple story with lots of repetition and patterned phrasing for early readers Carle s big collage pictures and the firefly lights make this fun for young readers.
I love all of Eric Carle s books.

One of my favorite Eric Carle books The story itself is not that amazing and a little confusing but the pictures are excellent and the back page is glorious When all the friendly fireflies light up, my 3yo son s face was one of awe Worth it
A lonely firefly meanders through the night looking for others of its kind Will it ever find them This book gave me a legit gasp moment when I reached the last page at the library It s a fun surprise and a great little story along the way I don t always love each and every illustration but the style is undeniably unique and appealing.

In this book a lonely firefly is looking for another firefly by following around different sources of light He first spots a lightbulb through a window, hoping that it was another firefly He then spots a candle and flashlight and is once again disappointed that it is not another firefly He continues to follow around different sources of light until he finds a group of fireflies and is no lonely I believe that the major theme of the book is to never give up He did not give up he found what he was [...]
What we love about this book Common urban animal firefly as main character The art is special and interesting, but not confusing Carle s collage technique can be used to inspire collage making cutting and pasting Lots of smart, deliberate repetition of key words, phrases, and story patterns help children track what s happening, motivating them to attend I believe kids feel secure safe even and proud of themselves when they can anticipate the next line Carle signals to children when the book is a [...]
