Freddy for President
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     Hello, kids, I'm Freddy the Firefly, and I'm here to tell you something important. I'm running for President of Bugs. You probably already know me, or you might know me by a different name. I'm also called a lightning bug. And if you've seen me outside, you know that I am simply the coolest, most useful bug out there. That's why I'd make a great President of Bugs.
 
2     When I was "born," I actually hatched out of an egg laid underground. I was a tiny larva living in the dirt. When I was little, I already had my special talent, making light. As a baby, I was also called a glowworm. My light wasn't very bright, but enough to get noticed. I spent the summer after I was born eating smaller insects and sometimes slugs and snails. When the winter came, I dug tunnels and lived underground.
 
3     Then came spring, and boy, was I ready! I came out of the ground to eat a little more and turn into what you see now, a fully-grown firefly! By this time, my talent of creating light had grown, too.
