In A New Butterfly, Connie watches through the spring and summer as an eastern tiger swallowtail butterfly goes through its life cycle. Children will enjoy the cumulative, sing-song verse patterned after "The House that Jack Built", and then peering under the flaps that reveal a caterpillar's metamorphosis. The book suggests ways parents and children can explore nature -- without disturbing it.
