    Beautiful Book… I’m a mom that has fairly restricted space when it comes to new books (we have too many!) and so we tend to use the library A LOT, and I tend to like books that have ‘lasting power’, which is to say that they can be used for a wide age group/a long time.”A Butterfly is Patient” falls into this long lasting group. It’s really lovely, with great illustrations, which is important when it comes to grabbing the attention of little-folk, and it has enough science, cleverly put, that it will be useful for the elementary years as well.The book really covers all aspects of a butterfly’s life: from egg to adult, as well as what the insects eco-niche is, and how it protects itself from predators….The only shortfall I could find is that there wasn’t a map to show off the huge migratory pattern of the Monarch. But other than that small flaw, it’s awesome and worth considering for the home or school shelves.Pam T~mom/blogger

    Beautiful Butterfly Book I bought this book to read aloud to my 2nd graders. We study the life cycle of butterflies every year, so I look for new material to add to the unit to keep it fresh. The artwork is detailed and gorgeous. The words are informative and thoughtful.I was so pleased with it that I ordered the authors other 2 books, An Egg is Quiet and A Seed is Sleepy.
