A Butterfly is Patient



A Butterfly is Patient by Dianna Hutts Aston 
Illustrated by Sylvia Long
Publisher: Chronicle Books. 
Published: 2011
ISBN-13: 9780811864794
Personal Copy












Some many authors have found new and interesting ways to describe insects, their life cycles, and worlds...and I love this!

A Butterfly is Patient starts with a spread of caterpillars and ends with a spread of butterflies. I think this is magical.

The book itself starts with the life cycle of a butterfly. From there it lets us know how they are helpful, how they can camouflage, which are poisonous, and so many other wonderful facts. But the beauty is in the way each piece of information is told.




You will truly enjoy this wonderful book about butterflies!
