This is a great non fiction book that teaches about the stages of a butterfly in a story type way. The kids enjoy the illustrations and they are able to learn about the different stages of life the butterfly goes through. It makes a connection at the end to them being a kid reading the story.

This is another fun book in the Are You a... series of books by Judy Allen and Tudor Humphries. We like these books. They offer scientific information, but in a colorful and fun format. Children will like how the books speaks to them and helps to compare a human to the insect described. And the Did You Know... section in the back offers additional facts about the topic. We will certainly look for more books in this series.
Beautiful art, with a wonderful way to introduce butterflies to first graders.
Wonderful book with beautiful illustrations! Judy Allen did a great job of describing the life cycle of a butterfly on a level that a young child could not only understand, but be entertained by. Other books had too much information for my three year old's short attention span, but Are You a Butterfly? kept her happily listening all the way through. I am glad I picked up this book and am planning to look for more books from this series for my daughter.

There are so many things you can do with butterflies. This book is kind of too informational for my liking, but it would be one to have on the shelf for further learning.
This is an awesome book that can be integrated into literacy and science. Shows the life cycle of a caterpillar into a butterfly and at the end has information on butterflies.

This book does a great job of portraying the lifecycle of a butterfy with wonderful illustrations. I also like how it compares a butterfly with a human.
