    I appreciate that Dianna Hutts Aston and Sylvia Long published more books because students can become familiar with the author's poetic way of writing about science and also enjoy great illustrations. Key vocabulary include molt, chrysalis, metamorphosis, eyespots, and predators. This book would also be useful as another example of life cycles and paired with CC #4 systems and system models. Students could also look at the different parts of a butterfly and study the structure and function of each part (CC #6).

    Genre: Informationa;Media: Water color and AcrylicUse: Learning about insects and their purpose in the world! Getting students excited about doing a science project.Critique: This was a beautifully illustrated book with accurate informational text that described not only the various complexities of the butterfly species, but also the purpose of those complexities and how they can be admired and used by humans.

    This informational book follows the life cycle of a butterfly. First it starts as a patient egg, followed by a creative caterpillar that forms a chrysalis and undergoes metamorphosis. Once the butterfly has hatched, the author explains that a butterfly helps by spreading pollen from the flowers - pollination. They are also protective: some have "eyespots" to scare away predators while others use camouflage or noises to scare predators away. They authors proceed to inform readers how some butterflies are poisonous, all are spectacular, thirsty, big or tiny, and even scaly! Butterflies are not moths but they do travel. Finally, the author explains how butterflies are magical and patient again... Just waiting to soar!

    Wow! Amazing illustrations with labels identifying different species. Uses descriptive traits as a theme for each page. Gives a refute, in a way, A Butterfly is not a moth." It would be a lovely book to pour over with a child in my lap. I would use it with an insect unti along side the NAtional geographic video of butterfly life cycle.

    Beautifully illustrated and poetic in the introduction to the world of butterflies. Just right for reading at home or in the classroom. All you need now is some milkweed or other plants to attract the butterflies, a butterfly net and camera to record the different butterflies that you come across out in the field or in your own backyard.

    A beautiful look at a butterfly and how patience can turn something into a beautiful butterfly.

    I liked this book for the fact that it was very colorful and animated and as it talked about a certain type of butterfly the name would popup beside its picture. It was also very educational about a topic that I felt I would or should have known fairly well but I actually learned several facts that I hadn’t know and never even imagined. Like Monarchs fly as high as 11,000 feet and the largest butterfly is over a foot wide and lives in Papua New Guinea. Or that some butterflies are poisonous because as caterpillars they ate poisonous plants to keep birds from eating them when they became butterflies. I liked that when the book talked about the location of these butterflies it showed a world map with the location marked in red. This book I would say is definitely for an older child as it uses terms that I doubt younger children and even an adult might not know such as the Cretaceous period (40 million years ago). There were also some other large odd vocabulary words but they did give the meaning of those words, so that was helpful. Like Lepidoptera means scale wing and proboscis is their tongue. I liked that the book was so descriptive that it was easy to understand these big odd vocabulary words. I also liked that it was illustrated the way it was, showing what each butterfly looked like as a caterpillar and a butterfly. I like that the illustrations showed you how fast the caterpillar grew by lining up different stages of development on a twig and having the times labeled so that they could be compared. I felt that the author of this book wrote it in such a way that it showed the butterflies were so varied and really to teach you about butterflies.

    Butterfly lovers rejoice! Diana Jutts Aston and Sylvia Long - the author/illustrator team responsible for An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy - turn their attention to our pieridine friends in this, their third natural history picture-book, and the result is a decided triumph! Like the previous two titles, A Butterfly Is Patient is meant to explore the world of a particular category of things (or creatures) - in this case: butterflies. Using a dual narrative in which a general, and rather poetic statement - "A butterfly is patient" / "A butterfly is helpful" - in larger print is paired on each two-page spread with a more detailed, factual paragraph in standard-sized font, the text is clearly intended to engage readers at a number of different levels.Paired with Sylvia Long's gorgeous watercolor artwork, the end result is a lovely book that is sure to appeal to nature-lovers young and old! The decorative first and last pages (conveniently not the endpapers, which might be covered up by stickers in library copies) are given over to a wealth of caterpillars and butterflies, and the interior artwork is lushly colorful and detailed. With such an engaging textual format, and such beautiful illustrations, Aston and Long seem determined to prove (yet again) that educational doesn't have to mean boring or dry!

    I think my favorite thing about this book were the illustrations and the fact that each butterfly was labeled.

    I love kid's nonfiction books that are perfectly geared for kids, but also draw in and educate adults. The illustrations are beautiful. I sat at my desk and felt like I was in the middle of a butterfly garden.
