Build a… Butterfly
Publisher: Frances Lincoln
This sturdy board book with bold, colourful illustrations guides the reader through the life cycle of a butterfly. It contains lots of fascinating information, simply presented for young children to easily understand. Different body parts are named, such as the thorax, abdomen and proboscis, and children will learn that butterflies roost upside-down when it’s dark or raining, and many only live for about two weeks.
Durable press-out pieces on each page slot easily together to create a striking large-scale model of a painted lady butterfly.
Written in conjunction with the Natural History Museum, this lovely book is ideal to accompany a nursery or school topic on minibeasts, and will also be enjoyed by those who have an interest in nature.
