Summary:
Describes the physical characteristics and behavior of butterflies, including their development from egg to caterpillar to adult. These books take readers through each stage that occurs from birth to adulthood-from egg to tadpole to frog, or from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. Lush, accurate illustrations of habitat feature plant life and other animals on die-cut pages that get longer as the animal grows! Captions, labels, and diagrams provide lots of information on every page without sacrificing the book's beauty and appeal. The story of each animal's life will captivate younger and older children both, and the glossary and index will provide extra information for kids or educators who want to know more.

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 4-These books have bold, bright, full-page paintings throughout. In the first title, Llewellyn depicts the metamorphosis from egg to caterpillar to butterfly and introduces other insects and plants that live among monarchs at various stages of life. In the second title, readers watch the transformation from egg to tadpole to frog and meet other flora and fauna that live in a pond. There are two layers to the texts. Larger, bold type gives all the necessary information to describe the conversion from egg to adult and is suitable for reading aloud in the classroom or library, while a smaller, captionlike font provides additional information that enriches the material. The graduated, sturdy pages reveal more and more of each ecosystem. Each book includes a combined scientific glossary and index. A simple diagram that illustrates the life cycle of each subject is appended. The interesting page sizes and full-page illustrations will appeal to young naturalists.-Christine E. Carr, Lester C.
