There are so many wonderful aspects of this book. First the photography will blow you away. These pictures were taken in Judy and her brother's garden as they were documenting these beautiful creatures....If you love butterflies, then I recommend you add this book to your library. I think it makes a great gift for children, teachers, wildlife enthusiasts and gardeners.

From the Author
If we can just encourage people to care about nature on a personal level it will change their lives forever. And we know from our own experiences that families who share their outdoor activities together form closer bonds to each other. Our childhood love for butterflies fueled our quest to become naturalists and has led us on the adventure of a lifetime as we grew into nature photographers, authors and public speakers.

Each species also has useful information listed in the text, such as known host plant(s) and favored nectar plants. There are also some additional species shown as adults in the back of the book for which the authors have yet to photo-document an entire life cycle.
I have seen this listed as a children's book, and it would be appropriate for many children, but I find it quite beautiful and informative enough to be suitable for adults as well.
I've been gardening for birds, butterflies and bees for years now. One of my successes was having Black Swallowtail caterpillars the very first year I grew dill for them. But when I bought this book I was able to locate and identify the tiny eggs, and observe the entire life cycle of this species.
I live in the Mid-Atlantic region, and most of the butterflies profiled in the book also occur in my area. Some species profiled occur over most of the U.S.--like the Monarch and Painted Lady-- but some are more limited in range. If you live on the Pacific coast, for instance, you might not see many of these butterflies. The photos are still beautiful. The insects featured are still fascinating. And the format of the book is user-friendly.
