A Butterfly is Patient. By Dianna Hutts Aston
“A butterfly is patient. A butterfly is helpful, protective, and poisonous. A butterfly is spectacular.”
Dianna Hutts Aston’s gorgeous book is filled with realistic images and interesting insect science. But it offers more. Its simple prose invites the child to ask questions and seek out their own information.
Butterflies can be found on every continent except Antarctica. A child anywhere in the world can pick up this book and use it to explore the species that live in their region. It is an excellent book to keep out in either the classroom or a child’s bookshelf and is suitable for a child as young as two.
Enjoy A Butterfly is Patient!
