Seymour Simon's longstanding record of excellence in children's publishing is confirmed again in this NSTA/CBC Outstanding Trade Book. Large, detailed photographs both support the middle–level text and provide opportunities for observation and inquiry.

The book's detail makes it appropriate not only for browsing but also detailed and guided observations. Sequential illustrations like pupation enable students to understand life cycles. This book includes ample information on adaptations, evolution, and a variety of common species so that it can easily serve as a classroom reference for field observations or individual projects.

Simon encourages students to leave the classroom and explore butterflies in the field—an expedition that will leave no reader behind. He also provides information on plantings that can bring these beautiful creatures to the school yard.
