The creators of the award-winning An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy have teamed up again to create this gorgeous and informative introduction to the world of butterflies.
From iridescent blue swallowtails and brilliant orange monarchs to the world’s tiniest butterfly (Western Pygmy Blue) and the largest (Queen Alexandra’s Birdwing), an incredible variety of butterflies are celebrated here, in a book to delight any child.
“Similar butterfly albums abound, but none show these most decorative members of the insect clan to better advantage.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Beautiful.” —The Wall Street Journal
The evocative text is sure to inspire lively questions and observations. Yet while poetic in voice and elegant in design, the book introduces children to more than 60 types of eggs and an interesting array of egg facts. Even the endpapers brim with information. A tender and fascinating guide that is equally at home being read to a child on a parent's lap as in a classroom reading circle. Plus, this is the fixed format version, which looks almost identical to the print edition.
