Munchkin loves her factual books and can often be found with her head in books which are increasing her knowledge. So she was excited to see a book giving her 100 facts on butterflies and moths which was released on 1st June 2006 by Miles Kelly Publishing.
100 facts of Butterflies and Moths was written with the help of the Butterfly Conservation and any young fan of butterflies and moths will love to have this in their book collection.
Prepare to take flight and explore the incredible lives of butterflies and moths.
Learn all about these beautiful insects, from super senses to the intiricate life cycle, through one hundred facts, fantastic images and fun cartoons. Discover which is the worlds’s biggest moth, why antennae are so useful, and how an egg develops into an adult.
A paperback book with 48 pages it is aimed at ages 7+ and with an RRP of £6.99. The 100 interesting facts are numbered and come with activities and some amazing images.
Munchkin at 10 years old was fascinated to read all the facts. As soon as she got home from school she sat down to read it and I didn’t see her for most of the evening as she was totally enthralled with the book. Soon after she had read most of it and learnt some facts she didn’t already know, I kept being asked…..’Mum did you know……..?’
Bee at 4 years old also loves looking at the pictures as they are so detailed and now keeps going into the garden to look for caterpillars and butterflies!
What I personally love about it is that it just doesn’t provide facts but engages children further by adding fun activities such as quizzes and crafts; for example making a hanging mobile. Factual books can get a bit too information heavy which can be daunting for children, but the questions, quizzes and activities along with the close up detailed photos and artwork are sure to keep a child, or even an adults, interest.
While teaching children about caterpillars, butterflies and moths and their life cycle, parents will also be pleased to learn that the book supports education at key stage 1 and key stage 2. We are all pleased to have this book in our book collection.

Oh one of the things that really scares me are butterflies – I know that is daft, but they really do!

Ooo! What a fab book. This would go great alongside one of those raise your own butterfly sets. Such a fun thing to do but so educational
Books like this are perfect and really feed their minds. My little girls are obsessed with butterflies and we have loads where we live luckily. Mich x

It’s great when they really enjoy reading about something isn’t it 🙂 That looks like a great book.
This looks like a great book. My kids have always been fascinated with bugs and mini beasts, so would really enjoy a book of facts like this. It might help me to answer some of their questions too!
My girls would love this book. It’s nice to have some really informative books to balance out the fun ones.
I love books like this that help children (and adults) identify insects, plants and animals. Such a shame that we don’t seem to have that many butterflies around any more. I’m sure I remember seeing loads as a child
