Where Fireflies Dance Podcast

ESL Book Club

Welcome to a short podcast, Where Fireflies Dance Book Discussion (mp3) or Discussion Podcast. It is one discussion in a series called "Tell Me a Cuento," a book group for adults reading picture books with universal themes. This discussion happened at Child Care Circuit in Lawrence, MA. We read
Where Fireflies Dance by Lucha Corpi, a book in English and Spanish, illustrated by Mira Reisberg. The book includes titles of songs people played in cantinas in Veracruz, Mexico which led to our singing in the book group. You'll hear about being a tomboy forced to learn embroidery, the lure of tropical flowers, memories of cantinas - and you'll never doubt how nearby the children are.
