The Butterfly House

Publisher: Lincoln Children’s Books

Did you know that there are over 180,000 species of butterflies and moths, and ten times more moths than butterflies? Butterflies have been on earth since the time of the dinosaurs and live in all parts of the world except Antarctica. But who among us could name more than two or three different types? That’s where this beautiful book comes in.

Inside an imaginary glass butterfly house, we make our way through a variety of butterfly and moth species, all fabulously illustrated by the very talented Alice Pattullo. From brush-footed butterflies to gossamer-winged butterflies, from the intense blues of the swallowtail butterfly to the giant silkworm moth, readers will soon start to realise the sheer diversity and brilliance of these wonderful creatures.

Each page features some facts about each type of moth or butterfly, and the illustrations are clearly labelled so that children can start to learn the different species. A very lovely and informative read.
