    A Beautiful Butterfly Book and Much More!

    This is one of the best butterfly books I've seen for children. They will learn about much more than butterflies; children will come away with an understanding of how human behavior can affect the natural world. Melissa Stewart successfully tackles the tough task of introducing children to environmental concerns without being heavy-handed. Her tone is hopeful and the text gives readers a true appreciation for butterflies and their ecosystems. The book is written in simple rhythmic language with two levels of text. Young children can read the easier text, while older children, a parent, or a teacher can read the higher level text. This promotes a valuable shared reading experience. The book ends with some practical suggestions of things kids can do to help butterflies.

    Beautiful Butterfly Book

    A Place for Butterflies, written by Melissa Stewart, is a science book that reads like an intriguing story. In clear and poetic language, Stewart explains how specific butterfly species survive and how each is intricately linked to its environment. Readers will also discover how human actions affect these splendid creatures. Written in a reverent and hopeful tone, the book will foster both a sense of wonder and responsibility. Delightfully detailed paintings by Higgins Bond provide an exquisite accompaniment.

    Written to instil love and appreciation

    Award-winning children's book author Melissa Stewart presents A Place For Butterflies, a picturebook beautifully illustrated by Higgins Bond with realistic, full-color art of butterfly species and the lush natural environments they inhabit. Each two-page spread features a couple sentences about butterflies, a sidebar about a specific butterfly species, and artwork of a typical home for that species ranging from forests to lush open fields. A Place For Butterflies is written to instil love and appreciation for these marvelous insects, and a final section about helping butterflies warns against catching or keeping them, or spraying chemicals that could harm them.

    Help is on the Way

    This is an upbeat and informative read. The outstanding illustrations help children see a wide range of butterfly environments and understand that butterflies are more than just pretty fluttering creatures. The text helps children understand how they can provide a welcoming habitat where appropriate as well as understand the importance of preserving a range of habitats. Kudos to Stewart. I recommend the book highly.

    A Great Book!

    I love this book, and so did my students. We studied butterflies in the fall, so this book was a good way to review the material we covered. But it also includes good additional material--stuff you don't see in most books. The art is great, and the author clearly and simply explains a wide range of things people are doing to help butterflies. The message is realistic, but also upbeat. Tt's perfect for my second graders.
