Hello Friends! I am so glad you have joined the Club Firefly community! I am a mom and art teacher who was inspired to create Club Firefly to combine two of my favorite things: a good story and seeing kids shine through their artwork.
I love reading books and it’s always been a special way for me to connect with my boys. As an art teacher I love the crossover between literature and art and I think it’s beautiful when they come together. See you soon on YouTube!
Why the name Club Firefly?
When I was young, I was pretty shy. I could connect with people so much easier when I joined a club. Whether it was a book club, music club or one of the ones we made up — like sticker club — clubs provided a sense of belonging. They allowed me to connect with others who shared my interests — even if I was still pretty shy! Fireflies also take me back to my childhood. I loved to chase after them, fascinated by the way they light up the night sky. Every summer I would catch fireflies and I still catch them with my children now!
The name Club Firefly is more than nostalgia. Through reading and creating, I want children to build their confidence and grow. To spread their wings and fly. I hope Club Firefly gives members a sense of belonging, an opportunity to shine bright and light up whatever corner of the world they live in.
