"Given the diverse coloration of butterflies, they're a natural way to introduce to the concept of color, which is covered in this board book that also counts from one to 10. Examples include three cloudless sulphur butterflies in bright yellow-green and 10 pink-tipped clearwing satyrs (the butterflies are ID'd on the back cover). Text is minimal (each number appears as a word and numeral, along with the name of each color), and Bersani offers precise portraits of each insect set against moody backdrops. Up to age 3."
