By:Raphael Thierry

Velma Gratch and the Way Cool Butterfly
By: Alan Madison

Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly
By: Jane O'Connor

Butterfly Butterfly
By: Petr Horacek

Happy Reading!



  1. I loved teaching my kindergartners about butterflies. It was one of my favorite units!

    Here is a craft idea I got from Martha Stewart last week. It is a piggy bank out of a soda bottle.

    Have fun!

  2. Thanks Violet! You have a good eye. I love the ideas you share.

  3. Butterfly, Butterfly is a fav at our house (might have something to do with the main character's name...but the illustrations are beautiful!) Always glad for book recommendations!

  4. I LOVE the craft.
    I have to recommend The Butterfly Alphabet. From Amazon's description, "Magnified photos reveal letters and numbers among the patterns on butterflies' and moths' wings" You have to see it.

    Thanks! I took a look. What a fun book.
