This book will help young children gain a better understanding of nature and enhance their early literacy skills at the same time.
The book is essentially a review of the life cycle of a butterfly. The text is in rhyme and is delightful. The book starts with smaller, more sedate illustrations and expands and blossoms to giant, dazzling, brilliantly colored illustrations as the butterfly develops, escapes its cocoon and takes flight.
The final pages identify the illustrated butterflies and the flowers shown in the text and gives advice to readers on how to start a "butterfly garden".
The information provided is accurate and informative for the pre-school/young elementary reader. The illustrations are among the best I've ever seen in a nature book, using bright, warm colors and a wide variety of artistic styles that maintain interest and dazzle the eye. The text is rhythmic and entertaining.
This book is pure joy from begining to end. You'll enjoy it as much as your kids will!
My kids, at 6 and 7, are technically too old for this book...but even they got caught up in its delights. Highly recommended as a read-aloud for any age from 3 to 6, and beyond...
