Among a Thousand Fireflies

author: Helen Frost
illustrator: Rick Lieder

series name:
Step Gently, Look Closely

On a starry summer evening, a firefly lands on a flower. Lights start to flash all around her — first one, then hundreds. Thousands. How will she find just one flash among them? In evocative photographs and lyrical language, Rick Lieder and Helen Frost offer a story of how two fireflies come together after finding each other’s light among thousands of others.

“This simple, delightful story of two fireflies finding each other among thousands is sure to enchant children.” — School Library Journal
