The Little Firefly, by Sheri Fink, is an adorable tale about a young firefly who longs to shine. He watches the older fireflies glow and dance and play exciting games of Fire Tag. As he watches, he dreams of the day he will be able to join them. But what if he never shines like the other fireflies? One of his friends tells him that fireflies that don’t learn to shine get sent to live with the June bugs. But his parents wouldn’t send him away, would they? As all of his friends begin to glow, the Little Firefly wonders if he will ever have his night to shine.

Sheri Fink’s book, The Little Firefly, is a heartwarming tale that will teach children that they will all grow up and have their chance to shine in their own unique time. It is also a story that shows that even if you are different or slower to develop than others, those who love you will support and care for you no matter what. I highly recommend adding this book to any child’s library and think it would be an excellent tale to share in elementary classrooms. The story is engaging and fun to read, and the illustrations created by Mary Erickson Washam are absolutely beautiful. It is a simply stunning and aesthetically pleasing book to read. I can’t wait to read more from the Whimsical World of Sheri Fink Collection, and to share this tale with my own niece and nephew.
