Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Who can resist those flighty, paper-like beauties of the garden world--the butterflies? Children have been fascinated since the beginning of time. Here is a pocket-sized edition that helps identify nine species of butterflies, gives the reader a brief history of their origin, what they like to eat and where they roam in their travels. Each species is noted by a few special facts about it. There are photos and illustrations of each butterfly which are very helpful in the identification process. The size of the book is hiking and backpack friendly and features a life list for the reader to track the butterflies that he/she has identified. A great gift for outdoor enthusiasts. 2000, Houghton Mifflin Company, Ages 7 to 12, $15.00 and $5.95. Reviewer: Barbara Youngblood
