Book Lovin' Linky: Butterflies {June 17}

I'm linking up with Deanna at Mrs. Jump's Class for her Let's Talk About Books Linky.

This week I'd like to share one of our (my) favorite butterfly books: A Butterfly is Patient (link to Amazon).  I was introduced to this book about 4 years ago at a science workshop I attended.  We received 16 different science units, many of them about animals, to use with our students.  This book was one that was covered during the butterfly unit.

The illustrations are beautiful!  Throughout the book, the main sentence of the page gives a characteristic describing a butterfly, then facts about butterflies are shared on each page.  My students loved the different facts throughout the book.

There are similar books for other nature topics: A Seed is Sleepy, An Egg is Quiet, and A Rock is Lively. What are some of your favorite nature/animal nonfiction books?

Be sure to stop by Deanna's blog to find some other great book recommendations!
