Kingfisher Readers L1: Butterflies by Thea Feldman From the scales on their wings to their remarkable talent for camouflage, how they taste (with their feet!), how they eat, and their incredible transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, this book takes a fascinating upclose look at butterflies. New words are introduced throughout the text with subtle highlighting-insect, nectar, chrysalis-and a glossary at the back gives the definition. The beautiful photography and the carefully constructed text work together to help new readers decode the amazing information.
