BETTY THE FIREFLY by Marie-Claire Telleh_A GMTA Review

Review of Betty the Firefly

A heartwarming, touching, and inspiring collection of seven educational stories, told in the form of interactions of Betty the Firefly with insects, animals, fish, and other creatures, this little book is suitable for both children and elders. Middle-graders (or younger with advanced reading skills) can read these stories for themselves, and their brevity makes them suitable for parents and grands to read to younger children as bedtime stories. The main point of this book is to awareness and validation of feelings, and the short stories (and tag lines at the end of each) help to reveal the point of each parable-story. Each ends on a positive and uplifting note, giving hope and encouragement to readers (and the story’s characters as well!)
