PreSchool-Grade 1?Although the drama of metamorphosis has been documented with greater detail in other titles, this presentation stands out because of its classroom setting. The process is seen through the children's eyes as they experience the excitement of observing the wiggly caterpillar, watch it molt, change into a chrysalis, endure the endless waiting, and stare in wonder as a Painted Lady butterfly emerges and dries its wings. The closing pages show the class at the window watching the insect pause on a flower before flying away to begin the life cycle once again. Pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations create a cheerful setting similar in style to those found in Miriam Cohen's books about classroom events. Close-ups show the stages of transformation as captions wend along plant leaves and stems reminiscent of a caterpillar crawling. A small collection of butterflies commonly found in most parts of the U.S. and a list of addresses of butterfly centers are appended. An inviting book that young children can relate to and one that teachers will find valuable to support nature-study projects.?Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ

However, this book is not quite what I had in mind so I will keep looking for something else for my own son. The reason I want to look for something else is simply that the drawings of butterfly stages were rather small at times and not very clear... plus there was very tiny text wrapping around items in the drawings. This made the book hard to follow for the purpose of just learning the life cycle of butterflies. Talking about raising butterflies on their own seemed to take away from just learning about butterflies and their life cycles...
Overall the book does the job, I just wish it was a tiny bit better.
We also found out this book is used at his kindergarten for their butterfly learning.
This is the first Let's-Read-And-Find-Out book we've bought and were impressed enough to want to get the other books in the series.
