PreSchool-Grade 1-- A lovely, fascinating introduction to metamorphosis. In addition to excellent-quality, full-color, closeup photographs, Ling also utilizes endpapers and borders to illustrate the stages of egg to butterfly. Although written in first-person (caterpillar?) style, this fictionalization does not diminish this first-rate science book for young children. Pair it with Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Philomel, 1969) for a successful story hour. More information is included in Reidel's From Egg to Butterfly (Carolrhoda, 1981) and Look . . . a Butterfly (Troll, 1982) by David Cutts, but neither surpass the visual impact of this one.- Cynthia M.
