    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 Crick 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 which makes the chirping noise, so we may have to just go out and buy this one too

    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
