Not a Butterfly Alphabet Book: It’s About Time Moths Had Their Own Book!

We rated this book:


Butterflies are everywhere, and they seem to be symbolic of everything that is sweet and pretty. Moths, on the other hand, seem to be thought of as the butterfly’s ugly step-sister. Not so! Moths are every bit as beautiful and interesting as butterflies, and this book will demonstrate that to children. Author Jerry Pallotta has written an interesting and fun text to accompany the stunningly beautiful illustrations by Shennen Bersani that fill every page. Details of the moths that can be seen in the large, bright illustrations will teach every reader to appreciate the colors and markings found on these creatures. Pallotta informs readers of the special qualities that make moths different from butterflies with little bits of information planted in the text, so readers can take the information in without being overwhelmed by it. There are two special spreads in addition to the 26 pages dedicated to the alphabet of moths; one talks about scales that cover certain animals including moths, and the other shows the life cycle of moths. This book will draw kids into science and learning without ever tipping them off to the learning going on. Don’t miss this amazing book.
