This comprehensive book on butterflies belongs on school and home library shelves. The Face to Face series focuses on animals and insects. The topic and organization appeal to younger and older audiences of both genders. The text is has a few definitions and pronunciations for young readers. Author Darlyne Murawski adds some of her personal experience as a researcher, giving the book a more kid-friendly tone. Details from Murawski include how she took the photographs and where she conducted her research. Every page has color photographs, mostly close-up views of butterflies. Photo captions enhance the information with descriptions and supplemental facts. Two maps illustrate butterfly migration. The photos serve to illustrate the information but also to break up the very heavy text on each page. Text and photos describe the life cycle of the butterfly, including mating and fertilization. Short, well-organized chapters lead to the book’s final features: How You Can Help, It’s Your Turn, Facts at a Glance, Glossary, Find Out More, and an index. National Geographic is a trusted source, so school libraries can confidently add this to their science collection.
