Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Full-color photos & full-color illus. Fabulous photos reveal the differences between these two families of insects and an easy-to-read text explains why moths are attracted to light, why some caterpillars are so hairy, and more.

Format: Paperback
Being a fan of other Eyewitness publications, I was surprised to find myself disappointed with this book. As with all Eyewitness books, the photographs are lovely. However, they concentrate mostly on large images of butterflies and moths, concentrating mostly on their beauty, rather than showing more close range photos that show body parts. Most annoying is the complete lack of a photographic and text chronological process of egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly or moth. How can they leave this out? They show bits and pieces of the life stage scattered throughout the text, which I found confusing and disjointed. If an adult is confused or lacking a feeling of thoroughness, I wonder that the children aged 4-8 which the publisher has this categorized for will think.
I advise to skip this book completely and move on to "Eyewitness Butterfly and Moth" which is slotted for ages 9-12 (but my younger children are able to handle as a read-aloud). That book has more detail and more of the wonderful beautiful photographs.
As a comparison, the book for children titled "Life of a Butterfly" by Heiderrose and Andreas Fischer-Nagel does a superb job of showing high quality photographs of the life cycle. There are more stages than I was expecting and detailed photos such as the caterpillar shedding its' skin.
