Where did the butterfly get its name?
People used to believe that butterflies flew into kitchens, attracted by butter and milk.
From metamophisis to migration, camoflouge to hibernation, eager young insect enthusiasts will find a wealth of information within this book.
With lifelike illustrations of Lepidoptera, including close-up views of their wings and eyes, kids will learn that butterflies and moths taste with their feet, that some actually make noises, and that the largest butterflies can grow to be almost a foot wide!
Young readers can explore the changing earth they inhabit with this question-and-answer formatted book. In simple conversational style, the Bergers answer questions about butterflies. Full-color illustrations.
