The Butterfly

The Butterfly is a charming picture book written for preschool and early elementary children. M and B enjoy “reading” it. Michael Crosse and the London Butterfly House were consulted to be sure all the information is accurate. One thing I really liked is how the book helps check children’s comprehension with a few questions. But I also like how every other sentence is not a question!

The illustrations are beautifully done. As you can see it is a good sized book, just over 10×10 (inches).

I’m not sure what the fishy face is for. An hour or so later I caught B reading it to her pink stuffed lion.

The Butterfly was written by Anna Milbourne & illustrated by Cathy Shimmen. Anna has written many books for Usborne, including The Dinosaur, The Little Pony, and the Pipkin series.
