Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Butterflies are beautiful creatures, and the photographs used to illustrate this book present them in close-up detail. There are wings with beautiful colors, antennae with knobs on the ends and feet that are touching the flower where the butterfly has landed. The text is set up such that a statement is made and then the question "True or False?" follows. Kids can guess, turn the page and see if they were right. For example, "Butterflies need the sun's warmth to fly or feed." Yes, that is a true statement. Also true: butterflies do not chew their food, and they have a long proboscis which they use to drink nectar and water. Readers learn plenty of other facts relating to butterflies, including their choice of flowers for food, that they taste with their feet, and that antennae are used for touch and smelling. In addition, their wings are made up of overlapping scales, and some butterflies have perfected camouflage or other characteristics that frighten off possible predators. There is a difference between butterflies and moths, and some butterflies migrate thousands of miles. The butterfly lifecycle is detailed; as noted, throughout the book there are eye-catching illustrations. At the end, there is a two page index. Difficult words have been presented phonetically and are explained within the text. This is an informative and attractive book for any child, especially those fascinated by insects. A good resource for home, school and public libraries. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
