Among a Thousand Fireflies

By Helen Frost
Illustrated by Rick Lieder

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

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.

  • 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.
