Butterfly Field Guide

A fun book we recently purchased at the Nisqually Delta book shop is the Peterson's Butterfly Field Guide. I knew we were going to be doing a small unit on butterflies so this was a great addition - as well, Holly enjoys these kinds of color books for general use.

This book covers so many different butterflies, some native to our region and others are not. However, it really opened Holly's eyes to just how many are out there. The book is neat in that you choose a butterfly image you would like to color, find the sticker that serves as a guide on what the butterfly looks like and then color that image. There is also a paragraph or so on each butterfly. The beginning of the book also does a nice introduction to butterflies, their habitats and life cycle. This is a great book!


  1. What an awesome book! Thanks for linking up.

  2. This does look like a great book! We just did a post on our blog about an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly.
