Item Description...
When one little firefly sets off to find a companion, he realizes that his task isn't as easy as he had expected after encountering numerous lights in the nighttime sky.

Publishers Description
One night a very lonely firefly goes off in search of friends. Each time he sees a flicker of light he flies off toward it, but none of them turn out to be fireflies. He sees a lantern, an owl's eyes, even headlights shining in the darkness. Will the lonely firefly ever find creatures like himself? A classic in its own time, The Very Lonely Firefly is finally available in a beautiful board book format, perfect for the youngest readers and the smallest hands. And just as in the hardcover edition, the fireflies' lights actually light up, delighting children of all ages.

More About Eric Carle

Eric Carle The secret of Eric Carle’s books’ appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.

The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his extensive knowledge and love of nature—an interest shared by most small children. Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience.

Eric Carle has received many distinguished awards and honours for his work, including, in 2003, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his lifetime contribution to children's literature and illustration.

Carle says: “With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held. School is a strange and new place for a child. Will it be a happy place? There are new people, a teacher, classmates—will they be friendly?

I believe the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood; the first is, of course, being born. Indeed, in both cases we leave a place of warmth and protection for one that is unknown. The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.”

Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he divides his time between the Florida Keys and the hills of North Carolina.

the Very Lonely Caterpillar  Jan 19, 2008

Excellent!   Jan 2, 2008
The book lights up! My 3 year olds love this book. It gets read every night.
Great for the kids!  Nov 14, 2007
I really liked this book but you can't go wrong with Eric Carle. I love the last page... it has a special suprise that the kids will love. You will not be disappointed.
Great book - not so great battery life  Jul 3, 2007
This is a really cute book, my son loves it. We also have Eric Carle's "Brown Bear Brown Bear" so this is a great addition to his book collection. My son's favorite part of the book is the last page where all the fireflies are shining their lights and the book actually has blinking battery-powered lights. My only complaint is that the battery has already worn out and we've only had the book for about 3 weeks.

i'm sure the battery can be replaced, it just seems like it would have lasted longer.
