Caterpillars to butterflies

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
In this easy nonfiction book, young readers who have a love for nature will learn all about caterpillars becoming butterflies. Vibrant full-color photographs will captivate readers on each page. The text is short and printed in a font size that is larger than most typical nonfiction. This will allow even the youngest readers who have an attention span long enough to sit still for the length of a longer picture book to be able to enjoy learning about these fascinating insects. More difficult words are bolded (for example: prolegs, antennae, and chrysalis) throughout the text so that readers can pay special attention to them. However, these bolded words are not explained in a glossary at the end of the text. Instead they are defined within the text—seeing how the very young audience that the book is geared toward would not have the patience to continually look at the end of the book to learn what the words mean. One very nice feature is that in the "Words to Know and Index" page at the end of the book, many words have a color picture to help readers who aren't good at reading isentify the pages where they can find more information (for example, there is a picture of a moth and then it lists page numbers where you can read about moths). This is a wonderful addition to the "It's Fun to Learn About Baby Animals" series. Reviewer: Joella Peterson
