Butterflies Soar

Amicus Ink. (Little Nature Explorers). Mar. 2022. 20p. Board $8.99. ISBN 9781681527055.
PreS-K–From leafy snacks to snug cocoons to unfurled wings, delicate watercolorlike textures reveal how caterpillars metamorphose before happily taking flight as monarch butterflies. Along with Wildflowers Grow, this series captures quietly remarkable moments in nature in gentle, short rhymes with carefully selected verbs winding through soft, expansive compositions.
VERDICT Children are never too young for the fascinating details surrounding the monarch. This is a perfect addition to the natural science shelves.
