A Butterfly is Patient

Updated on January 21, 2015

Discover the World of Butterflies!

A Butterfly is Patient will captivate young entomologists as they explore some most interesting creatures. From the moment where, as an egg, they lay hidden beneath a leaf, through caterpillar, prepupa, pupa, and at last a butterfly, the dainty creatures need to be patient!

Readers discover many facts about butterflies, like why are important to other living things, how camouflage and poison keep them safe. The engaging text is accompanied by full color beauty, from black-and-white to a rainbow of hues, just as butterflies are in nature. The illustrations really do demand the readers attention.

Plenty of further facts such as butterfly scales, monarch migration, and the fact that a moth is not a butterfly, bring readers a deeper understanding. And in the end a butterfly is patient:

"the egg hatches, the caterpillar emerges, feasting on leaves, before it wraps itself into its warm, protective chrysalis, patiently waiting to soar!".
