Butterfly Season Is Here - Books About Butterflys

Butterfly season is here and while my 2-3 year old classroom didn't raise caterpillars to butterflies this year, the other classes did. All survived and the kids at school are so excited about butterflies that I cannot wait to share these books with them. 

Did you know that there are over 20,000 ways to be a butterfly??

In April 2019, Quarto Kids releases two books perfect for budding lepidopterologists and naturalists!

THE BUTTERFLY HOUSE (Frances Lincoln Children’s Books / $19.99 / April 2, 2019)
Step inside the butterfly house, where wonderful, winged insects await. Spot the sleepy oranges mud-puddling, the monarchs migrating, or the green swallowtail beating its shimmering wings. With information on many butterfly and moth families, this gift package is the perfect introduction to the world’s most beautiful insects. 

This is the perfect book to see the life cycle of a caterpillar and learn more about caterpillars and butterflies.

The book has incredible artwork and I am in love with the fonts used. My preschool kids are going to love this book. I believe it will be a well read resource for years to come. 

HOW TO BE A BUTTERFLY (words & pictures / $17.95 / April 16, 2019)
A joyous, imaginative, yet informative non-fiction picture book about what it takes to be a butterfly – body parts, behavior and life cycle – with the underlying message that diversity is a wonderful thing. With labelled butterflies throughout, there is plenty for young nature lovers to spot and explore time and again.

I love everything about this book! The artwork, fonts, colors, how engaged my kids were when I read it to them. We have always been curious about the difference between butterflies and moths. This book definitely cleared things up and one of my favorite "Butterfly" photos I now know is a moth. 

Definitely a great book for all ages.
