A Butterfly is Patient
A Butterfly is Patient written by Diana Hutts Aston with illustrations by Sylvia Long is a book on the biology of butterflies, habitat and migration.
From Publisher's Weekly: Aston explores the habits, migration, and attributes of one of nature's flashier, yet familiar creations. Long's watercolors are precise but enchanting as ever, especially in the "A butterfly is spectacular!" spread, which shows the colorful diversity of more than a dozen specimens, and in another devoted to the migration of monarch butterflies, seen swarming over a quiet desert. A lovely mix of science and wonder. Ages 5–8. In paperback.
