“This clearly written volume lays out the differences between butterflies and moths in double-page spreads that allow readers to compare the characteristics of the two animals. … The precisely worded, informative text is brief but does not simplify the facts. … highly magnified, colored photos … Well designed … a useful addition to classroom units and a rewarding science book to share with young children.”
“… these dual profiles of common creatures should give budding naturalists an increased understanding of how scientists use appearance and behavior to classify similar living things…" Spreads feature sharply detailed paired photographs of identified specimens seen from the same angle … and every book closes with a salient and potentially surprising new fact about each type of animal. Consider these books to lay groundwork for nature expeditions and for later studies of taxonomy.”
