About the Book:

When we shine with our own light, we are unstoppable!

At Lala’s home, everyone is very busy preparing food and decorations to attend The Concert of the Lights, one of the most fun and anticipated events in the Pond by The Rock. The garden’s inhabitants eagerly await the fireflies’ arrival to illuminate dozens of lanterns for an unforgettable and magical night. A young firefly, Lucy, hides behind the branches, nervous and unsure of being able to fulfill such a responsibility.

What will Lala and Ari come up with this time to restore her new friend’s self-confidence? In the series’ third book, we learn to be brave and always give our best. This magical story highlights empathy, self-esteem, support, courage, empowerment, community, culture, family, and friendship.


Cuando brillamos con nuestra propia luz… ¡somos insuperables!

En casa de la Lagartija Lala, todos están muy atareados preparando comida y decoraciones para asistir al Concierto de las Luces, uno de los eventos más divertidos y esperados del año en el Charco de la Piedra. Los habitantes del jardín aguardan con emoción la llegada de las luciérnagas, quienes iluminarán la mágica noche con su habilidad de proyectar luz. Una de ellas, Lucy, se siente insegura de poder cumplir con tanta responsabilidad.

¿Qué idearán Lala y Ari para devolverle a su nueva amiga la confianza en sí misma? En el tercer libro de la serie, aprendemos a ser valientes, a dar lo mejor de nosotros y a ser genuinos en toda circunstancia. Mensajes del cuento: Autoestima, empoderamiento, valentía, identidad, diversidad, empatía, amista, cultura y tradiciones.
