    Handy guide The two things I liked best about this book are the pages devoted to identifying butterflies by color (it groups them so that if you see one that is predominantly orange, you can look at the page of orange butterflies to find the one you’re trying to identify), and the pages devoted to creating an attractive butterfly garden, with schemes showing how to arrange plants that attract butterflies. It’s not a technical book, thereby making it a good guide for backyard butterfly enthusiasts.

    Bird lovers…become butterfly enthusiasts… I’ve been enchanted with birds ever since I observed my parents whistling and mocking the mockingbirds who mocked them back. I’ve been a gardener forever, cursing those creepy caterpillers who devoured this and that. In the past few years I’ve taken a greater interest in butterflies, and lo what do I discover…the creepy caterpillers turn into the beautiful butterflies if the birds don’t eat them first. I knew that of course because like lots of kids, I too brought home the cocoon found on some branch and kept it in a glass jar with holes punched in the top until it did not “hatch.” Yes, I said did NOT. I never had any success with this effort so I forgot about caterpillers and cocoons–until I opened STOKES BUTTERFLY BOOK and there are those darn cocoons again.
