From Caterpillar to Butterfly Big Book (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)

Where did the caterpillar go?

It seems to have disappeared, but it hasn’t. It has turned into a butterfly! From the time a caterpillar first hatches, it eats so fast that its skin can’t keep up. It sheds its skin several times as it grows bigger and bigger. Eventually it forms a shell around itself called a chrysalis. Nothing seems to happen for a long time. But then one day the chrysalis splits open, and a beautiful butterfly emerges. What a magical metamorphosis!

    It’s perfect to use when “growing” butterflies in class! I use this book every year when we do our butterfly unit in the spring. What’s wonderful about it is that it not only teaches the kids all they need to know, but it’s set in a classroom. So my students really relate to it. I’ve used it with every class I’ve taught from K-3. When I have the budget I buy a copy for every child and they take it home as a souvenir at the end of the unit.

    THE Book to accompany Butterfly Houses, Pavillions We got this book in addition to a home “Butterfly Pavillion” by InsectLore. It prepared my son and us for what to expect as the Painted Lady Butterflies were developing through each stage. So even during the lulls in the action, we could spark some anticipation. Which heightened the whole process for my 5 year old.We also found out this book is used at his kindergarten for their butterfly learning.This is the first Let’s-Read-And-Find-Out book we’ve bought and were impressed enough to want to get the other books in the series.
