Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Long and thin or short and feathery? Read to find out how to differentiate between a butterfly and a moth. The color photographs of different butterflies and moths support the comparisons. Examine and compare the close-up snapshots of the scales on the wings of these insects. Each chapter features a particular characteristic, a different type of butterfly and moth, and a brief description to distinguish the butterfly from the moth. In one chapter, the different characteristics are summarized. There is a list of vocabulary words with a pronunciation guide on the page after the table of contents. Additional resources and websites are located at the back of the book. Young children may enjoy examining the pictures and looking for differences with the guidance of an adult. Some young readers may need support from an adult with the content vocabulary and the informational text features. This book is one from the "Which Animal is Which?" series. The books in the set follow a similar format. The series is an excellent addition to a study unit on animals. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
