Waiting for Wings: 07/15/11
Lois Ehlert's best books specialize on some aspect of nature. Waiting for Wings is no exception. This book teaches about the life cycle of the butterfly.
As with Eating the Alphabet and Planting a Rainbow, Waiting for Wings shows a variety of flowers and the species that like them.
At the back of the book Ehlert provides a chart of the different flowers with their names and the different species of butterflies in all their forms. It's a great introduction to the most common types of butterflies and a good way to get children thinking about the similarities and differences of various species.

The charts are lovely. We liked them too. And the artwork.
