I remember when I first came upon this author and it was since of my elementary school. We had an assembly where the author was invited and ever since he told me there was a Julia butterfly I have been hooked with him.

The book writing is simple, large letters and easy for any child to read, especially with very young beginners. The author uses each entry to describe some fun facts for the children

The other thing that will catch the reader's attention is the beautiful detailed artwork and the interactive reading style that asks the reader to answer a question or whether you thought a non-butterfly was an actual butterfly. There are other parts that will have the reader trying to find the butterflies while the author closes with a suggestion that the reader go look for butterflies in their neighborhood with the put in warning to be careful since they are fragile (brownie points).

I was just disappointed a bit that the Julia butterfly wasn't included....

Definitely a literary gem! ( )

I love all the pictures in this book. They are all bright and colorful. This book goes through each letter and names a butterfly species that matches. Then the book gives a detailed explanation of what the butterfly looks like and some facts about it. The illustrations also show how the butterfly looks exactly and where they can be found. This book would be good for kindergarten as well as the upper elementary grade levels who are experimenting with butterflies, watching them grow from a caterpillar to a butterfly.

This book describes all different kids of butterflie from A to Z. It would be great to use if my science class was studying butterflies and would also come in handy when learning the ABC's for younger children. www.jerrypallotta.com ( )
