Publisher Summary

From egg to hungry caterpillar, to beautiful, fluttery butterfly, this picture book with flaps follows the complete life cycle of a butterfly. With sturdy board book pages and exciting flaps to lift, it’s the perfect life cycle book for young children. This captivating nature book will entertain and educate preschoolers. They’ll love finding out about each life cycle stage, as they follow the fascinating pictures and listen to the fun and friendly text. Beautifully illustrated, the book starts by showing all sorts of colorful butterflies. Then through the story of the swallowtail, children learn how a butterfly grows. Close-up photos show the mommy swallowtail laying her eggs, the tiny caterpillar hatching and growing, and the pretty butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. The fully grown swallowtail’s scaly, brightly patterned wings lift up from the page as fluttery flaps, and more flaps reveal three other caterpillars transforming into incredible butterflies and an amazing moth. As well as the butterfly life cycle, the book includes other butterfly facts, such as how they feed, how they spread pollen, and how they are similar and different to moths. Perfect for reading aloud, and with stage by stage pictures that tell the butterfly story, every page is easy to follow, and the combination of exciting, crystal-clear photos and charming artwork will hold the interest of the very young. With a friendly approach to life cycle science for young learners, How Does a Butterfly Grow? is an informative picture book to share and enjoy. It makes a great educational gift.
