Step Gently, Look Closely
On a summer evening, just as the stars blink on, a firefly lands on a flower. Lights start to flash all around her ó first one, then three, seven. Hundreds. Thousands. How will she find just one flash among them? And will he see her flash in return? In evocative photographs and lyrical language, Rick Lieder and Helen Frost, creators of the critically acclaimed Step Gently Out and Sweep Up the Sun, offer a true story of how two fireflies come together after finding each otherís light among thousands of others.
How can a firefly find the one, among so many? Exquisite photographs and poetic text evoke a sense of mystery and magic.
