Butterflies and Moths by Nic Bishop
Nic Bishop’s latest nonfiction book for children is filled with crystal clear photographs that dazzle and amaze. This time Bishop has turned his attention to the wonder of caterpillars, butterflies and moths. Accompanying the images is fascinating text that allow readers to better understand moths and butterflies and the way their lives and bodies work. Bishop has once again managed to take pictures that verge on the impossible. The furry body of a luna moth with his bright yellow antennae is looming and large. The actual-size image of a blue morpho butterfly hovering in the air is breathtaking. The four-page spread of a butterfly taking off from a flower is simply amazing.
Budding scientists and just those who love these lovely insects will find much to see and learn here. This book belongs in every school and public library. Period. Appropriate for ages 5-9.
