Freddy The Firefly Shines His Light is the delightful tale of how Freddy learns the gift of encouraging others. The story is beautifully written…the descriptive words and phrases make this story come to life. While the main point of the story is the lesson Freddy learns about kindness, the author also weaves in some interesting facts about fireflies. The character of Freddy is one with whom children will connect. The illustrations are bright and cheerful. Reading this story gave me a special glow! I look forward to reading this to my students and my seven year old son.
