Simply Science blog - Shirley

"Using a graphic format,  Eggs, Legs, Wings explains the life cycle of a butterfly, but it’s much more than that. The book traces the life cycle, but each chapter also includes information that extends each stage of the cycle. Insect characteristics and up-close graphics show clearly what the text is stating. . . .This is a lovely book for young readers and one I’d loved to have had when I taught second grade." - Simply Science blog

NTSA - David Tumbarello

"Using the presentation of a graphic novel, this book shares the life cycle of a butterfly with young readers. The author and illustrator work together to describe the cycle—from the adult that lays eggs, to a larva facing dangers, to the transformation in the chrysalis, and finally to a new adult. The strength of this book lies in the illustrator's ability to focus on small details. In one panel, illustrator Simon Smith focuses on the body parts of a butterfly, and in another he zooms in on the small egg that is the size of the head of a pin. True to the graphic novel format, several young characters interact with the butterfly as they remark on the visual detail. "I can see wings!" says one character as she looks at the chrysalis. Alongside the dialog, scientific facts are presented in boxes. Because of the large number of scientific terms, this well-presented visual guide might be best used for guided reading or some other type of teacher-led reading activity." - NTSA
