    Food for the Imagination Written as if the author is speaking directly to the reader, this wonderful book draws the reader into the world of the butterfly. It does a very appropriate job of explaining the life cycle of the butterfly in terms a preschooler can understand. The illustrations are also quite nice, not too detailed or flowery, not too plain. They complement the simple text very well. Especially nice are the ones near the end of the book of the little girl.

    Great for the budding naturalist Another winner from Kingfisher Publications!I just bought this book for my 2 year old daughter and we love it! the pictures are beautiful. The text is well thought out- it is engaging and informative but still will not overwhelm a toddler. I am going to get the rest of the books in this series in hopes that they are all as good.

    Not the Best Butterfly Book for Young Children I purchased four books on butterflies for the first grade class that I adopted and unfortunately this was the WORST book by far! It had about 20 written pages, but the information just wasn’t that great.What bothered me the most was that the book ended so abruptly. It just said not to touch a butterfly’s wings. If they cannot fly, they will die. What kind of ending is that for a children’s book??!Believe it or not, one of the absolute BEST books on butterflies is from the Cat in the Hat series, “My, Oh My – a Butterfly!” It had the very best information, as well as a great rhyming pattern!”The Very Hungry Caterpillar Pop-Up Book” was very cute too.I’m sorry, but save your money with this book. I just can’t recommend it at all!
