I love kid's nonfiction books that are perfectly geared for kids, but also draw in and educate adults. The illustrations are beautiful. I sat at my desk and felt like I was in the middle of a butterfly garden.

A beautiful book! It is almost magic. The illustrations and language are awe-inspiring. Children and adults will thrill to the message!

this does a wonderful job of explaining the caterpillar butterfly story for children. The beautiful illustrations make it possible to identify both caterpillars and butterflies. It is therefore an art picture book that also teaches a nature/ science topic! Win-win!
