Beautifully illustrated, the book starts by showing all sorts of colourful butterflies. Then through the story of the swallowtail, children learn how a butterfly grows. Close-up photos show the mummy swallowtail laying her eggs, the tiny caterpillar hatching and growing, and the pretty butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. The fully grown swallowtail's brightly patterned wings lift up from the page as fluttery flaps, and more flaps reveal three other incredible caterpillar transformations. As well as the butterfly life cycle, the book includes interesting butterfly facts, such as how they spread pollen, how they are similar and different to moths, and how to attract them to your garden. Perfect for reading aloud, and with stage by stage pictures that tell the story, every page is easy to follow, and the combination of exciting photos and charming artwork will hold the interest of the very young. With a fun approach to life cycle science for young learners, How Does a Butterfly Grow? is an informative picture book to share and enjoy. It makes a great educational gift.
