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. –Readers Favorite

I just finished reading The Little Firefly and was not at all surprised to find it just delightful! The magical images beautifully compliment the unfolding story of the little firefly who wants to grow up in a hurry. The Little Firefly is a gift to parents struggling to reassure their children that everyone grows up at their own pace -and most importantly, that they are loved and accepted just the way they are! –Carol Henault, Executive Director of Reading is Fundamental Southern California
