Format: Board book
Okay, don't even hesitate on this book, just buy it! The fireflies light up at the end of the book and there just couldn't be any child anywhere that wouldn't be thrilled with this book. Mine just played and played with it and couldn't put it down. Still is one of his favorites and has to be read VERY frequently! This is such a cute, cute book and very well done. Plus, it has fireworks in it - another household favorite! It goes through and shows the many things that light up at night, explaining them very well. Just grab it and run - you won't be disappointed!

Great book in classic eric carle style. Love the illustrations! The end of the book features all these cute little fireflies with flashing lights, but unfortunately the batteries now have died and I can't find replacements!!!!! The conventional watch battery sold in the stores is too big for the battery requirement in this book!!! Yikes! Otherwise, a great book. :(

My children love this book. The flashing lights for fireflies at the end is the icing on the cake! We have been out for the past 4 nights catching fireflies in a jar (and then letting them go) to watch them glow. My boys (ages 3 and 5) love all the Eric Carle books.

The Very Lonely Firefly is a good book. This firefly is in search for another. He shines his light to attract others but can never find anyone. This book keeps you in suspense. He always finds a light but...It's never a firefly. To find out the ending of this book read The Very Lonley Firefly!

This book I didn't like very much.It's about a firefly trying to find his friends and family.So he looks and looks.But everytime he thinks it's them.It isn't.But he keeps on looking.It teaches kids if you keep on trying you'll find what your looking for.It probaly for kids between the ages of 5 and 7 years old.This book is okay.Good but not the best.At the end the fireflys flash.

My son loves the book but it seems like the same story as The Very Quiet Cricket to me, with a slight differences. When the book first came the lights didn't blink and I was afraid I'd have to buy batteries. After about 5 days my son was playing with the button on the last page and the lights began to blink - he squealed and played with the book for a really long time.
It's a great book, classic Eric Carle artwork and just long enough to still be interesting when you reach the end, but not on my "must have" list. It's always checked out from the library so I bought it. No regrets on buying it - we've read it daily for almost 2 weeks now - and he liked it even without the lights, so I'm sure he'll like still like it months from now.

A classic with beautiful illustrations. Very happy to have it as a board book so I can read it to my son using only one hand.
