Among a Thousand Fireflies

By Helen Frost
Illustrated by Rick Lieder

How can a firefly find the one, among so many? Exquisite photographs and poetic text evoke a sense of mystery and magic.

On a summer evening, just as the stars blink on, a firefly lands on a flower. Lights start to flash all around her — 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 other’s light among thousands of others.

  • A beautiful follow-up to the award-winning and well regarded Step Gently Out and Sweep Up the Sun.
  • Rick Leider s firefly photos are simply magical!
  • Helen Frost, one of the best poets writing for children today, has crafted a lyrical love story in this series of haiku
