Summary
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. Perfect for a child's bedroom bookshelf or for a classroom reading circle!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Following closely the presentation of An Egg Is Quiet (2006) and A Seed Is Sleepy (2007), this lovely and engaging book is devoted to the beautiful butterfly and its metamorphosis. Each double-page spread focuses on an attribute: patient, helpful, protective, and so on. The information about each phase is concise and loaded with interesting factual tidbits and each butterfly is carefully labeled, too. From the endpapers, featuring 32 caterpillars (in the front) and 34 butterflies (in the back), to the detailed page-by-page depictions, the realistic acrylic illustrations are consistently elegant.--Cummins, Julie Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This companion to An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy is as delicate, elegant, and informative as its predecessors. Under headings that echo the book's title ("A butterfly is helpful," "A butterfly is poisonous"), Aston explores the development, habits, migration, and attributes of one of nature's flashier, yet familiar creations. Long's watercolors are precise but enchanting as ever, especially in the "A butterfly is spectacular!" spread, which shows the colorful diversity of more than a dozen specimens, and in another devoted to the migration of monarch butterflies, seen swarming over a quiet desert. A lovely mix of science and wonder. Ages 5-8. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
