A book that we enjoy over and over again with my boys is Eric Carle's, The Very Lonely Firefly. The Very Lonely Firefly. The book is about a little firefly that could not find other fireflies. It went around looking for lights, but all it could find was flashlights, cars, and even an owl. Until the end when it finally finds another firefly. In the last page of the book the fireflies light up. It is such an enjoyable book and I always love watching my little guys' eyes and faces light up when they see the fireflies at the end. We also enjoy reading the book called Fireflies. The kids in Fireflies catch fireflies just like we've been doing this spring. The Catch And Release Project
Is a video of us catching, observing and releasing fireflies. We hope you enjoy our video, especially if you do not have fireflies in your area. We have been learning from my Twitter mates in Australia and amigos in Mexico that the areas they live in do not have fireflies. As a matter of fact, our friend down under, has never had the "pleasure of seeing one."
We dedicate this video to them and anyone else who doesn't have fireflies in there area. Visit my blog to see it>>
