"It's amazing what you find inside by looking outside."
Inspired by a yard filled of fireflies during a summer night's walk...Robert Nutt has created an amazing book written to spark the light in us all, Amy's Light. Robert's daughter Amy, who is so beautifully portrayed through his photo-illustrations, has become frightened by the shadows on the wall of her bedroom. When she sees a flicker of light coming from her own yard, she is filled with hope! When Amy learns about the light, she also learns a lot about herself.
Amy's Light was the inspiration for the Alluem Kids Little Kid Class this weekend. The kids were completely captivated by this book and were excited to work on their Firefly Jar pictures. They filled (drew) their jars with what brings them light in their lives...what makes them smile...what makes them feel safe and warm. Family, pets, hearts, and...night-lights (some took it a little more literal :). We then of course practiced our Firefly poses!
