This fact-filled, colorful book looks at the amazing world of butterflies.
Melissa Stewart shares with young readers the basic facts about butterflies and some pointers on how youngsters can help butterflies in their own neighborhood. Bond’s realistically detailed illustrations highlight the diversity of the species, from the Schaus swallowtail butterflies in southern Florida to the endangered Mitchell’s satyrs. A Place for Butterflies reminds children of the interconnectedness of our world and shows how the actions of one species can inadvertently harm another.
