Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Donna Freedman
An oversized, 40-page that offers lots of scientific information on butterflies and practical information on dealing with them. Kids will learn to create "fast food restaurants" for butterflies as well as how to plant the right kinds of plants (not just flowers) to attract them to the back yard. They'll also find out how to use netting "corrals" to protect caterpillars from bird and insect predators, how to raise butterflies indoors and even how to mend a broken butterfly wing. Although the guide is careful to note that butterflies should be released quickly in order to find mates, parents might want to monitor their children's field activities so that young naturalists do everything by the book, so to speak.
