From Caterpillar to Butterfly
A caterpillar comes to school in a jar. The class watches the caterpillar each day as it grows and changes. Soon, it disappears into a hard shell called a chrysalis. Then the chrysalis breaks, and a beautiful butterfly flies out of the jar! This is a perfect beginner's guide to the mystery of metamorphosis.
Are You a Butterfly?
Butterfly begins with the egg, followed by the caterpillar, the chrysalis, and the emergence of the butterfly As newly hatched butterflies, readers are reassured, "Your wings are crumpled. Don't worry." As spiders, they are warned, "If you catch a wasp in your web, don't try to eat it." The softly colored, realistic illustrations depict caterpillars/butterflies and spiderlings/spiders going about their daily lives, keeping step with the text, and the focus comes back to a group of children at the close. Small carps-the butterflies have a pair of parents; the spiders only a mother. Neither species is identified, and some spiders do not spin elaborate webs.
Where Butterflies Grow
Imagine you are someone small - So begins the readers journey as a tiny caterpillar embarking on one of life's odysseys. The story goes through the stages of growth as the egg evolves from birth to the glorious moment when the butterfly takes wing. In a field of lacy leaves, a small caterpillar hatches, grows, and sheds its skin, becoming a smooth, green creeper. It eats and changes some more, then in a sequence of remarkable close-ups, spins a sliken sling in which to pupate - until it finally bursts forth as a brilliant black swallowtail butterfly. Includes suggestions on how to grow butterfiles in their own gardens.
I Wish I Were a Butterfly
After the frog at the pond's edge tells him that he's ugly, the cricket of Swampswallow Pond loses his zest for life and for singing. The glowworm and the ladybug try to persuade the cricket that he's just as good as the rest of them, while the dragonfly declares, "Wishing is a waste of time." Finally, the Old One, a spider who lives on the other side of the pond, spins a wise tale about the real beauty of friendship and convinces the cricket to sing again. Great for children building self esteem.

Beginning with basics of butterfly egg laying, the growth of caterpillars, metamorphosis, and butterfly behavior, the authors move to the heart of the book. With exquisite close-up photography, the eggs, caterpillars, chrysalids, and adults of 23 well-known butterflies are revealed. The reader is treated to the almost architectural forms of eggs; caterpillars that can be striped, spotted, spiny, or smooth; and chrysalids that may be ornamented with flecks of gold or camouflaged to resemble a dead leaf. Adult butterflies are depicted both with wings open and folded. A field notes section for each species supplies photos of host plants and nectar plants, a map of the breeding range, and a life-size silhouette. Book offers complete life cycle of butterflies
little girl spies a colorful butterfly and plays with it in the garden. The following day, she finds only a pink worm, a brown spider, a green beetle, a family of red ladybugs, an orange snail, three purple caterpillars, a blue dragonfly, and a yellow bee. She lies down in the grass to wait and, suddenly, the butterfly flies into view. Children will be intrigued by the die-cut holes in some of the illustrations and, most of all, by the large butterfly (the sole pop-up element in the book) that springs outward toward the reader from the last full spread. The sometimes thickly layered acrylic paint creates interesting lines and textures in the
artwork, which results in a richer experience than can be found in most picture books about colors.
