    Very Appropriate This video tells about the life cycle of a butterfly. It is simple and short enough for children as young as six to enjoy, and fascinating enough for all ages. There are some mating scenes that may require discretion, but they are by no means vulgar. It just depends on the audience. I will use this again.
