Beautiful Butterflies


An ode to the growth and beauty of butterflies (and their young admirers), this colorful, chunky board book is a work of art.

Every page turn of this chunky board book reveals a new layer of Margarida Esteves’s bright, graphic depiction of a stage in the life of a butterfly. A gentle introduction to maturation and diversity, this rhyming story reminds readers that everyone begins life small and then grows through various stages, some slightly awkward, to then emerge as a butterfly flying high in our own uniquely beautiful way.

Butterflies begin their lives so very small.
They go through growth stages that they may not enjoy at all.
But when they are grown and ready to spread their wings to fly,
nothing is more beautiful than a butterfly reaching up, up, up for the sky.
