My darling girl received several books for her birthday--no shock to anyone who knows us. Over the next few weeks I'll try to talk about all of them.
First off, is a book her gradma bought her: The Very Lonely Firefly by Eric Carle. I've mentioned before that my m-i-l is a pre-K teacher. Eric Carle's books are quite a staple for the four-year-old set.
The poor little firefly is born one evening and desperately searches for other fireflies. After several cases of mistaken identity, when the world is quiet, he finds some firefly friends. Best of all, the board book has a battery in it (which can be replaced) so the fireflies light up at the end of the story. Very cool.
