Day 6 of the 30 day 4H challenge is raising butterflies. Check out the whole challenge in my earlier post or at 4H.org.
We had the wonderful opportunity to raise butterflies earlier this year. Watching the process of metamorphosis is amazing. Today we won’t be raising butterflies again just reviewing our experience through pictures and books.
A couple of great books:
Caterpillar to Butterfly by Laura Marsh at National Geographic Kids
This is a great book for beginner readers. It has great pictures of each stage of the butterflies life cycle.
Explore My World; Butterflies by Marfe Ferguson Delano with National Geographic Kids
As most National Geographic Kids books go, they have beautiful pictures. This books goes into detail about butterfly’s food among other things.
Butterfly Book by Michael Berestain
This book has beautiful drawing of each stage of the metamorphosis stages. I like the description of different species of butterflies.
