Welcome to the wonderful world of butterflies. Writer Dianna Hutts Aston and illustrator Sylvia Long have teamed up again to celebrate these glorious insects. In its journey from egg to butterfly, this insect has to be patient. It takes a long time to become a beauty. Butterflies, according to Aston, are also creative, helpful, protective, poisonous, spectacular, thirsty, scaly, and magical. These creatures come in large and small sizes and some are able to travel great distances. Monarch butteries, for example, fly almost 3,000 miles from Canada to their winter home in Mexico.

This children's book is designed for kids ages four through eight. It offers a short but sweet glimpse into the wonderful world of butterflies. The facts about butterflies are rendered in such a way that they will also spark the spiritual practice of wonder.
