Butterflies are all colors of the rainbow and exist all over the world, so why not have a multicultural round-up of children’s books as well? We visited the Butterfly Garden exhibit at the Museum of Science, Boston last week, and here is a list of books to round out the visit.
What is your favorite butterfly book for kids? Please share and I’ll add to the list. I especially need non-fiction books!
Butterfly Books for Kids to Enjoy
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
A beloved classic, the very hungry caterpillar eats an amazing array of different things before turning into a butterfly. [picture book, ages 1 and up]
The Butterfly Alphabet Book (Jerry Pallotta’s Alphabet Books) by Jerry Pallotta
Pallotta’s alphabet books are like mini encyclopedia’s with a plethora of interesting facts on butterflies from A to Z, starting with the Apollo butterfly and ending with the Zephyr Metalmark. [picture book, age 4 and up]
