I have adopted a class that is now in First Grade. The school's motif this year is the butterfly, so I promptly ordered about 5 books on butterflies. I have to tell you that I ordered the Cat in the Hat book because I thought it would be cute. I didn't really expect much substance. I was WRONG!! The Cat in the Hat Butterfly Book was so AMAZING that I promptly ordered all 12 or so other books in the series like, "Is a Camel a Mammal?", etc. When I was growing up, the Cat in the Hat books were cute, but full of fluff. NOW the Cat in the Hat books are PACKED with information! I even learned a few things I didn't know!!! You will not go wrong with ANY of the Cat in the Hat books, but the Butterfly Book is simply brilliant! Excellent book for young children!

I recommend this book and all the others in the series. They are each around 45 pages of fun facts that our grandson, not quite 3 years old, loved. He kept asking for more, and sat through three books in one sitting. He later repeated facts from the books, showing that he was really listening and learning.

This book is a great addition to our home library! We had ordered live caterpillars and were learning about the life cycle of a butterfly, and this is one of the books that we really enjoyed! This is a great book for school-age kids, but we modified it for preschool age and it was great. I just omitted parts of it to make it shorter and my daughter loves the rhyming and pictures, and there are lots of great butterfly facts!

My 2 1/2 year old daughter loves the butterflies in this book and the rhyming keeps it really fun. It's very informative, but still Dr. Seussy enough to keep it entertaining. I was actually very impressed with how they got all the information into the rhyming format. Probably meant for older children, but my little girl likes all the pictures/drawings.

This book is currently misprinted. Ordered two copies from Amazon and both were defective. It may be a great book but it's hard to tell with 1/3 of the text cut off. Hopefully this product will be fixed within a few months.

Our family is a huge fan of the Cat in the Hat learning library. We own several of these books, including two others by Trish Rabe. Generally these books sparkle with vivid descriptions, interesting illustrations, and amazing facts. Generally speaking, this book does the same; however, with this one I just was not as impressed as I have been in the past. I was hoping for a lot more technical knowledge about butterflies for my curious children. Also, the prose just seems a bit clunkier than it has been with others in this series. Overall I would still give it four stars for the amount of information presented. It just seems as though the writer ran out of things to talk about. For a topic as captivating as metamorphosis, I found this surprising,

Despite my apparent fussiness, this is still probably one of the better light-hearted reference books on the subject. You just may want to supplement with another, more dense book.

Still love the cat in the hat learning library!

I bought this book for a 10 year old special needs child (her reading level is probably about that of a 5 or 6 year old). This was perfect for her. It is an excellent match for her reading level because most of the words are easy enough that she likes to read it to others, yet there are still many words for her to learn so we help her with those. She loves it when we read it to her too.

I bought this book to accompany the Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden (also bought from Amazon) for raising live butterflies from caterpillars. They really made the perfect pair (I even wrapped them together). I wanted her to be able to anticipate and recognize each stage as they go through their changes. She sure understands the stages now! This book takes you through each step of their life-cycle, plus gives many other fun facts about butterflies. It shows what several kinds of butterflies look like (including the Painted Lady Butterfly, which is what you get in the Butterfly Garden kit), and even discusses the fascinating migration of the Monarchs. Even I learned some things, and I was not expecting that!

But the best thing about this book is that she loves it so much and it is encouraging her to read. Her mom is also impressed and now thinks she should get more Cat in the Hat books. What more could I ask for?
