5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this!
By Kara on April 15, 2018
Wow. The illustrations in this book are phomemal. The book is perfect for my montessori classroom of 3-6 year olds. Some of the world are written in cursive and others are in print. Each page has a subject such as " butterflies are creative" and then includes 2-4 fact sentences. I bought the paperback and found it easy to push the pages back to flatten the book. The 11x8 size makes the book perfect for reading to a group. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, recommend!
By Hope W on June 4, 2020
Such a beautiful book with wonderful illustrations! It is very well made and has a lot of good information. My kids love reading it. The first page is filled with caterpillars and the last page has pictures of their matching butterflies - I liked that detail. Itcomplimented our spring/animal life cycle school curriculum. It was also larger than I imagined. I posted the book next to a 4x6 picture.
