About The Book Freddy the Firefly lives in a comfortable, old tree house with his mom, dad, and his baby sister, Gloria Glowworm. Freddy’s best friend, Frankie, swoops by every night and invites Freddy to play by the lake. One night, Freddy decides to ignore his mom’s flash dance, which signals him it’s time to fly home. The next day, Freddy must deal with a series of unfortunate incidents at school and at home. Freddy’s teacher, Mrs. Flutterby, has a sparkly personality with a special glow. She not only teaches her fireflies about science, but imparts valuable character lessons as well. Mrs. Flutterby encourages her fireflies to share their positive traits—their glow—with everyone they meet. Freddy finally takes this lesson to heart. The power of a simple, kind gesture to his friend, Fiona, creates a chain reaction that causes a magical glow in the classroom. Until one day, Mrs. Flutterby isn’t her usual sparkly self. In Freddy the Firefly Shines His Light, by author Leslie Tierney and illustrator Justin Canha, children learn that, just like Freddy, they have a positive glow to share with the world and make it a better place. A whimsical story that teaches children about consequences, outcomes and the joy of helping one another. This book is destined to become a favorite; children will revisit Freddy over and over again. Lauren P. Murphy, PhD, LPC, NCC Educator and Licensed Professional Counselor 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.

At the heart of the universe is a steady, insistent beat, the sound of cycles in sync. Along the tidal rivers of Malaysia, thousands of fireflies congregate and flash in unison; the moon spins in perfect resonance with its orbit around the earth; our hearts depend on the synchronous firing of ten thousand pacemaker cells. While the forces that synchronize the flashing of fireflies may seem to have nothing to do with our heart cells, there is in fact a deep connection. Synchrony is a science in its infancy, and Strogatz is a pioneer in this new frontier in which mathematicians and physicists attempt to pinpoint just how spontaneous order emerges from chaos. From underground caves in Texas where a French scientist spent six months alone tracking his sleep-wake cycle, to the home of a Dutch physicist who in 1665 discovered two of his pendulum clocks swinging in perfect time, this fascinating book spans disciplines, continents, and centuries. Engagingly written for readers of books such as Chaos and The Elegant Universe, Sync is a tour-de-force of nonfiction writing.
