There are some 18,000 species known as butterflies. They are beautiful, delicate, and mysterious creatures with countless stories about them. In various times and places, butterflies have been seen as bearers of true love, incarnations of the souls of children, initiators of spring, and a mixture of air and angels.

Jerry Pallotta and illustrator Shennen Bersani are enchanted with butterflies and in this board book for children up to 3 years of age, they present 10 lovely ones that stir the senses with their beauty. The intent is: "Count the butterflies from one to ten. Learn their colors, then count again!"
