Product description


Butterflies for Kids is an incredible look at the amazing butterfly species that can be found when children are exploring in their own backyards. It is very refreshing to see a children’s book that portrays the incredible world of insects in a scientifically accurate manner while still captivating the young reader. Lauren Davidson is a true ambassador for the entomology education industry!” –Kurtis Herperger, Gardens Manager at Victoria Butterfly Gardens and Director of International Association of Butterfly Exhibitors and Suppliers

Butterflies for Kids is full of beautiful photography and illustrations. Lauren goes beyond the basics but has still crafted a resource that is user-friendly for even the newest entomologist. I am pretty well-versed in the butterfly life cycle, but I have learned several new things from this book! Lauren brings her years of experience in entomology and children’s programming to Butterflies for Kids. It is a must-read for anyone with a curious mind!” –Nicole Temple, Vice President of Education, Houston Museum of Natural Science

“This is a must-have for every nature-loving kid! More than just the basics, this colorful guide covers butterfly biology, taxonomy, and ecology. It will help young readers better understand the important role that butterflies play in our ecosystem.” –Adrienne Brewster, Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory Curator, Entomologist, and Mom

“When I was a child, books like Butterflies for Kids showed me how to start exploring the world of butterflies right in my own backyard, and likely yours, too! Lauren’s playful and scientific portrayal of butterflies covers everything from metamorphosis to mud-puddling and is sure to inspire young junior scientists to explore the world of Lepidoptera.” –Timothy Wong, Biologist at California Academy of Sciences

    Great resource for budding entomologists!
    We received an advanced copy for review and I’m blown away by the quality of this book! It’s incredibly hard to find scientific books for kids that are not over their heads, watered down, or just plain boring. This hits all the right marks. My kids are 12, 10, and 8 – all enjoyed reading it! I will admit I thought I knew a lot about butterflies and even I learned a thing or two reading this! Love having this as a part of our home library and I look forward to using it with the kids to help ID butterflies this spring.

    6 Year old Girls Favorite butterfly book!
    This is a fantastic book on butterflies with a very high-quality photos. I bought it for a six-year-old girls birthday party and it was her absolute favorite present. It teaches you about each species of butterfly along with its pictures or photos. Finally, just because this book was very inexpensive, you won’t believe the quality of the book.

    😍 perfect
    We bought this book along with a butterfly habitat and butterfly larvae also off Amazon app as a precursor to our life cycle unit we are doing in home school this year.. I found the book very helpful and the children really enjoyed being able to identify butterflies in the yard using the descriptions in the back of the book

    Awesome book for butterfly people
    Very good book. Great images (pictures and drawings). Content is detailed and thorough but accessible for kids. As a parent I got a lot out of it too. We’ve been having chrysalis and butterflies in our backyard the past several weeks so this book has been a fun pairing with what we are doing at home.

    Butterflies Are Free
    My granddaughter loved every minute of the project. As we let them go she said : “Goodbye, butterflies! Have a nice life”. She is four years old.
