Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Young children will be hooked from the first page of this excellent beginning reader book about the life cycle of a butterfly. The clear, full-color photos of butterflies, caterpillars, eggs and chrysalis are fascinating. The text is intelligent and will appropriately challenge the earliest readers. Insets of insect body parts, such as feelers, wings, shell and more are used to illustrate natural science and reinforce new vocabulary words. In addition, the book has a picture word list at the back. The text breaks down complicated scientific stages into simple, easy-to-understand parts. This title would be an asset to any school or individual library. Naturally, it is a valuable resource during the spring and summer months when butterflies are born. It is compact enough to take on nature hikes and backyard explorations. The book is one in the publisher's "Beginning to Read" series. 2000, Dorling Kindersley, $12.95 and $3.95. Ages 4 to 7.

    Born to Be a Butterfly

    My 4 year old daughter says "good, very good." She says she would read it again.

    As a parent, I think it is good to mix in some non-fiction with the stories, rhymes, and comics my daughter wants me to read to her. This has a lot of fundamental information that as an adult reader we take for granted, but is essential to the understanding of what a butterfly is.
