Butterflies! Learn About Butterflies and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn!

Butterflies! Learn About Butterflies and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Butterflies) - Becky Wolff

 

3.5 Stars, borrow it

 

I’m not really sure why they would put in superstitions of butterflies almost as if its fact. Not all of the images in the book are actual pictures. Some are computer generated images. Another “fact” which I’m wondering why they put in this book since these books are supposedly aimed at young kids:  Children are quite fond of butterflies.” Yes, that is true but if this book is aimed at children, why would you put that in.   One good thing about the book is that they show images of each stage of a butterflies life cycle.  Overall I think it does a pretty decent job. The  pictures weren’t really pixelated and the facts were pretty strong. Worth a read if you can borrow it from somewhere.
