This nature alphabet book from best-selling author Jerry Pallotta features moths (not butterflies!) of all shapes and sizes.

Meet dozens of moths—and a few bonus creatures—with engaging text and a laugh-out-loud narrative, from A (Atlas Moth) to G (Green Lips Moth—no kissing allowed!) to J (Jersey Tiger Moth, whose underwings are a completely different color than their upper wings, not to be confused with their underwear) to Z (Zigzag Moth). Readers of all ages will be entertained (and learning!) with every page turn.

Read an Excerpt

A is for Atlas Moth

Don’t even think about calling this creature a butterfly! This is a moth. The Atlas Moth is the largest moth in the world. Wingtip to wingtip, this moth can be as wide as this page.

B is for Bella Moth

The word bella means “beautiful.” Most people think butterflies are more colorful than moths and have more intricate and interesting wings. It’s not true! Moths are spectacular, too. 

C is for Cow Moth. 

Butterflies and moths land differently. Most butterflies land with their wings folded up. Moths land with their wings spread out. Cow Moth, we want to say one thing. Moo!
