It begins as an egg beneath an umbrella of leaves, protected from rain, hidden from creatures that might harm it ...
The creators of the award-winning An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy have teamed up again to create this gorgeous and informative introduction to the world of butterflies. From iridescent blue swallowtails and brilliant orange monarchs to the worlds tiniest butterfly (Western Pygmy Blue) and the largest (Queen Alexandra's Birdwing), an incredible variety of butterflies are celebrated here in all of their beauty and wonder.
Poetic in voice and elegant in design, this book introduces children to an astounding array of butterfly facts, making it equally at home in a classroom reading circle as it is being read to a child on a parent's lap!
