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?
