It’s no secret that we love reading! Every year in the spring we have a lot of fun raising butterflies. These are books we have discovered over the years that have complemented a butterfly study unit really well. In this list of children’s books about butterflies, you will find both non-fiction and fiction books that cover toddlers to mid-elementary reading levels.
Also, don’t forget – Amazon provides ISBN numbers on all of their books which makes it super easy to order any of these titles from your local library. You can find that information on Amazon under the product description section for each book (you will have to sroll down a bit).
