    Delightful Book

    I bought this book for my grand-baby and she simply loves it!!! It's one of her favorite books. The little blinking lights are a wonderful surprise.

    Wonderful book.

    Totally engaged my 2 1/2 y/o grand daughter. We read it almost everyday and she doesn't seem to tire of it. Her 5 y/o sister is also able to read it for the most part snd loves reading it to me.

    Very very cute!

    This is a wonderful and cute Eric Carle book! I wish we had purchased it in "lap" sized edition because the words are kind of small. It is still a major hit with my son! He has been reading it for months and he is still amazed every time he sees the fireflies lights flicker at the end of the story. I recommend it but if you're looking for it I would try to find it in the "lap" size!

    Fireflys by Eric Carle

    My grandchildren love Eric Carle books. This purchase was a request by my 7 yr old granddaughter to give as a gift to her newborn cousin. My granddaughter plans to read this to her. When my granddaughter was little she always wanted me to read Eric Carle books to her.

    Wonderful edition of the The Very Lonely Firefly

    This book is a delight -- I almost kept it instead of giving it as a gift. I gave it to an almost 5-year old we were visiting in Japan (he speaks English) because we were going to a special garden to see fireflies. He loved the book and enjoys re-reading it.
