Every spring, butterflies emerge and dazzle the world with their vibrant beauty. But where do butterflies come from? How are they born? What do they eat--and how?
With a simple, rhyming text and glorious color-drenched collage, Lois Ehlert provides clear answers to these and other questions as she follows the life cycle of four common butterflies, from their beginnings as tiny hidden eggs and hungry caterpillars to their transformation into full-grown butterflies. Complete with butterfly and flower facts and identification tips, as well as a guide to planting a butterfly garden, this butterfly book is like no other.
LOIS EHLERT has created many picture books, including Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Leaf Man, Pie in the Sky, In My World, Growing Vegetable Soup, Planting a Rainbow, Waiting for Wings, and Color Zoo, which won a Caldecott Honor. She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
