Book Review: A Butterfly is Patient by Dianna Hutts Aston, illustrated by Sylvia Long

Are you familiar with An Egg is Quiet and A Seed is Sleepy? A Butterfly is Patient is every bit as educational and beautiful as the two books that proceeded it.

When it comes to nonfiction picture books, these take the cake. I LOVE THEM.

When reading to younger listeners, you can simply read the short, poetic sentences on each page. "A butterfly is helpful...A butterfly is a traveler...A butterfly is patient. The egg hatches, the caterpillar emerges, feasting on leaves before it wraps itself into its warm, protective chrysalis, patiently waiting...to soar."

Older listeners/readers will enjoy reading the more in-depth information provided.

The scientifically accurate illustrations are stunning and interesting.

Again, we love these books. What else can I say?

  1. I just found your blog and am EXTREMELY excited I did. Also LDS, it is sometimes very hard to find a good clean book, especially with our high standards. I have practically resorted to YA books and classics because they are safe. I just finished the Eragon series (I was on my mission when they came out) and am now searching for something good. Thanks SO much for putting together this blog!!
