Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The blue morpho butterfly should catch any reader's eye and entice him or her to open up the book. Butterflies are beautiful creatures and as the photographs in this book show, come in a vast variety of colors as well as patterning on their wings. The story of a butterfly's life begins with the egg and it hatching. The caterpillar is hungry and often munches up its egg shell as well as whatever plants are around it. As it eats and grows bigger it molts and sheds its skin. Finally it is big enough to turn into a pupa and when grown emerges as a completely different creature—a butterfly that can taste with its feet and smell with its antenna. They sip nectar from plants and finally mate and the cycle starts all over again. The beautiful photographs tell the story as well as the words. There is a photo index and definitions of a few terms, plus a blurb about the author and his efforts to create this book. Nic Bishop has many award winning nonfiction books to his credit. A Level 2 book in the "Scholastic Reader" series that is appropriate for developing readers. This book is targeted to grades 1-2, has a lexile of 550 and a word count of 343.

    Highly Recommended

    I purchased this book, together with another about butterflies for my great-niece, who was celebrating her fifth birthday. Her mother sent me a note that her daughter was delighted with the books, which when she spotted the package from me said "I bet that has 'Aunt Dorothy books'." As an educator, I always include carefully-chosen books, even if I also send a related gift. In this case, I also ordered for her a Butterfly Garden from the company Insect Lore, which will enable her (and her younger brother) to watch the caterpillars progress from caterpillar to pupa, to butterfly. One of the butterfly books shows pictures of a wide range of butterflies, the other is a brief story of a class which watches with excitement caterpillars going through the stages from caterpillar through butterfly, providing in a child's terms how this transition occurs.
