Book Review:The Little Firefly by Sheri Fink

The Little Firefly


The Little Firefly by Sheri Fink, illustrated by Mary Erikson Washam.


About the Book: The Little Firefly is an enchanting tale about a late-blooming firefly who can’t wait to be all grown up. When all the other fireflies are glowing except for the Little Firefly, she discovers that true friends will love and support her just the way she is. This charming story helps kids learn about love, friendship, and acceptance.

My Review: This is another wonderful children’s book by Sheri Fink. If you have a little child who wants to grow up in a hurry then this book is for you.

While the little firefly watches as her friends happily sparkled in the night sky and dance in the darkness, she wonders when she would glow as beautiful as they did. She asked her parents if she would ever glow and they assured her that every firefly receives the gift of glow when the time is right for them. But she wanted to glow so badly that she asked her mother to tie a yellow ribbon around her. But why having fun flying the ribbon came undone. Did the little firefly receive the gift of glow? You have to buy a copy to find out.

The importance of this story is that parents can teach their young ones that they are loved and will be accepted just the way they are. This story is beautifully illustrated by Mary E Washam who made use of colors to help tell the story. If you are currently working with children dealing with self-esteem issue then this is a great book to recommend.

  1. -The cover is so vivid and I imagine the rest of the book is also. It’s so important to make the little ones understand they are loved and perfect just the way they are. So it’s books like this that will reinforce it.
    Thanks for the review Ella.
