Fireflies 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
Rita6 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
The story is told in first person, and the setting seems to be in the country. This story is about a young boy making a wise decision to let the fireflies free so that they too can be happy, although he wanted to keep them badly. This book will interest students to find out what do fireflies need to survive, what do they eat, and how would one go about having a pet firefly?

Julie Brinckloe's "Fireflies" takes the reader back to the summer days of their childhood. The book follows a young boy, extremely excited for a night of catching fireflies in a jar with his friends. The night shines with the flashing of hundreds of fireflies and soon his jar is full and it's time to return home. As he settles into bed with the jar on his nightstand, the young boy soon realizes that the once bright light of the fireflies is fading and they seem to be dying. But they are HIS and he does not want to release them. At last when it looks like they will not survive, the boy finally realizes that he cannot be selfish and lets the fireflies go, back into the wild where they belong. Their lights shine bright once again and he knows he has done the right things no matter how hard it was for him to do.

Happy to say I finally found this book . This is a very speacial book to me. For My Friends I and helped create the book with the author and when she gave us all a copy of the book we were so excited and proud to be a part of something it was awesome, but somehow i lost my book and now finding this book means a lot to me I am going to order copies for all the little ones in my family . Its just a shame that my copy will no longer have the authors signature. This is a story all children will love to read.

Thank You
